“Continuous rain” forecast could postpone Game 6 tomorrow

Tomorrow night’s Game 6 matchup between Colby Lewis and Jaime Garcia is in jeopardy, with the National Weather Service forecasting a 90 percent chance of rain.

National Weather Service meteorologist Karl Sieczynski told the St. Louis Post Dispatch that the rain is expected to start around noon and will “be present for most of the day and evening.”

Asked to predict the status of Game 6, he guessed it would be rained out.

Rangers manager Ron Washington has already said that he’ll stick with Matt Harrison in Game 7 even if Game 6 is pushed back a day, but it wouldn’t be surprising if Cardinals manager Tony La Russa took advantage of the off day to avoid using Kyle Lohse in Game 7. Chris Carpenter on three days’ rest might even be a possibility. Assuming, of course, there is a Game 7.
