It’s gonna be wet in San Francisco for Game 2

1 Comment

You would have thought that having the Twins and the east coast teams out of the World Series would mean that this year we wouldn’t have any concerns about the weather. Yeah, you would have thought that, but you’d be wrong:

It doesn’t qualify as torture, but here’s another wrinkle for fans of the San Francisco Giants: The next Bay Area storm front is forecast to roll in on Thursday, just in time for Game 2 of the World Series.

“There could be half an inch of rain in San Francisco,” Steve Anderson, a forecaster with the National Weather Service, said Sunday. “I don’t know about Major League Baseball’s threshold (for playing or postponing a game), but it’s going to be wet.”

Of course, the saving grace here is that if a game does get postponed, neither San Francisco nor Dallas are the sorts of placed that are ever likely to get November snowfall, so things can get kicked for several days if need be.

Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.

The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in fourth place.
