Pirates – Phillies cancelled due to rain
I obviously picked the wrong game of the two to go to on Sunday as this Pirates-Phillies tilt never started and never will. It started raining minutes before the 1:05 pm start time and with rain in the forecast for the rest of the day, the game was called an hour later.
This really doesn’t mess up too much for the Pirates in terms of pitching. I’m sure D.J. Carrasco will be bummed that he didn’t get a start. But since Ross Ohlendorf is able to pitch in Port Charlotte, the Pirates’ starters are all still on schedule.
Ryan Church will have to wait an extra day to make his return to the lineup. He was expected to play for the first time since last Saturday, which is when he fractured the tip of his left middle finger.
Nothing else much to report here. I’ll file a blog with information from the Port Charlotte contest later in the day once that wraps up.
