As the West Coast Wildfires continue, Tuesday night's Giants-Mariners game has been postponed due to air quality concerns. 

According to NBC Sports Bay Area’s Alex Pavlovic, the game that was scheduled to take place in Seattle will now be played in San Francisco. The teams are expected to both fly to San Francisco and plan on Wednesday at 6:45 p.m and 1:10 p.m on Thursday. As the massive fires continue some cities in the region have some of the worst air quality in the world. Portland's AQI Index is at 271, which is said to be very unhealthy. 

Both Seattle and Los Angeles have AQI readings in the "unhealthy" range. San Francisco has also been affected by the fires but the air quality as of Tuesday evening is moderate. According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, MLB officials are also starting to consider how the west coast fires will impact the MLB postseason, as the ALDS and ALCS are scheduled to take place in California.
