The San Diego Padres took home two wins on Sunday in a doubleheader against the San Francisco Giants following game cancellations due to a COVID scare. The MLB released a review Sunday morning that has cleared the teams to resume games after the past two games were canceled due to a presumptive positive COVID-19 test.

The Padres won the first game 6-0 and the second 3-1. 

In a statement released on Sunday by the MLB-MLBPA Joint Committee, they stated that they had completed their review of the case from Friday.

"Following a careful review of all of the details presented in the particular case regarding a San Francisco Giants player that led to the postponements of their road games in San Diego on Friday and Saturday, the committee has determined that the presumptive positive did not represent an actual infection or present a risk to other personnel," the MLB released in a statement on Sunday.
