MLB Postpones World Series Game 6 Due To Rain Forecast

Rain is forecast for the St. Louis area for most of the day and evening on Wednesday, and so MLB has postponed the game:

Game 6 of #WorldSeries postponed due to inclement weather & forecast for rainfall throughout remainder of today

As expected, it will be played Thursday:

#WorldSeries Game 6 now Thurs 8:05pmET/7:05pmCT, potential Game 7 would be Fri same time, both on @MLBONFOX

It’s way too early to get any definitive answers, but as of now, I’d expect the two managers to stay with their previously scheduled starters for Game 6: Jaime Garcia for the Cardinals and Colby Lewis for the Rangers.

Over the last 30 years, World Series games postponed include Game 4 of the 2006 World Series, which was rained out — also in St. Louis. Before that, it had been ten years since a postponement, Game 1 of the 1996 World Series in New York. Other games postponed during that time are Game 3 in 1989 due to the earthquake in the Bay Area, Game 7 in 1986 and Game 6 in 1981.
