The game tonight was going swimmingly for the Pirates for the first two innings. Then you could almost literally go swimming on the field. The game was called and postponed after two full innings of play with the Pirates up 4-2 but the game will be restarted losing any stats that the game had. Bummer.
Like I said the Pirates were up 4-2 after two innings. The Cardinals got on the board first with a pair of runs in the top of the first off Pirates starter Jonathan Sanchez. Sanchez looked really bad in the first and settled down a little in the second but it really wasn't looking that great.
The Pirates came back and scored four runs off Cardinals starter Jake Westbrook and they collected five hits and nearly hit around the order. All for not though.
No make up date for the game was set. The Cardinals are back in town July 29-August 1 and August 30-September 1 so I am sure they will try to squeeze in this game with one of those.
