NLCS Game 3 back on after delay of more than three hours

7:03 PM ET: The skies have opened up at Busch Stadium and Game 3 of the NLCS is in a delay.

The Giants took a 1-0 lead on a Pablo Sandoval RBI groundout in the top of the third inning, but the Cardinals have provided all the scoring since. Matt Carpenter launched a two-run homer to right field in the bottom of the third, then Shane Robinson drove in David Freese from third base with a one-out, bases-loaded groundout to Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro in the bottom of the seventh. That’s when the rain picked up and the tarp was called for.

There’s a nasty line of storms headed through downtown St. Louis, but the weather is supposed to clear up at some point later this evening. When Game 3 of the NLCS resumes, the Cardinals will have runners at second and third base with two outs. Jon Jay will be batting with a fresh count against a San Francisco reliever. The Redbirds currently lead this one 3-1.

**********************

UPDATE, 10:05 PM ET: The game is finally back on. Jay will face Giants left-hander Javier Lopez.

    Why didn’t any of you Astros and/or Phillies fans warn us about Hunter Pence. And to think we were excited to get him in a trade. The guy is garbage.

    In other news it is currently sunny and 83 deg in San Francisco. October in California is the best.

      Very pleasant here in Virginia too. That would be more relevant if the – had gotten that 3rd out in the 9th in Game 5 before the roof caved in. Alas. :-(

        What the heck? It’s supposed to say Nats, as in Nationals, not a hyphen… damn.

    Go figure. It was 78 degrees and lovely as all get-out 24 hours ago here in St. Louis.

    Man you guys should see what it is like in Maryland. 10 minutes its sunny as day and just like that (literally) it pours. Then in 10 more minutes, it is sunny, the sidewalks aren’t wet anymore, and nothing happened!
