If you’ve looked out your window, you’d know why we’re in a rain delay at PNC Park. The first pitch between the Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers was scheduled for 7:05 p.m.. Obviously, that hasn’t happened.
It’s coming down pretty hard and thunder and lightning was striking often. That has slowed down a bit. The tarp has been on the field since the rain started coming down at around 5:30 p.m.
There’s no word of if/when this game will get going. I’ll post an update as soon as I hear something.
By the way, this is Tricia Lafferty here filling in for Rob Biertempfel for this series.
Now on to the lineups, if this game is played tonight.
