Cardinals-Pirates get rained out in second inning

Just as the Pirates got something going offensively, the rains came and washed it all away.

The Pirates were up 4-2 after two innings when Tuesday’s tilt with the Cardinals was called off. All of the runs had scored off Jake Westbrook, who was coming off a shutout of the Reds on April 10.

Erased from the statistics were a rare Pedro Albarez single and RBI, as well as a Russell Martin RBI. Those two sub-.100 hitters are stuck at one RBI apiece for the season. Alvarez is 3-for-41 without an extra-base hit. Martin is 2-for-35.

No makeup date was announced for the game. Wednesday’s series finale will have Shelby Miller and A.J. Burnett dueling, as previously scheduled.

    Of course the Cardinals are finally losing and it gets called off. They will probably win the makeup game and win 15-3 or something like that.

      You can’t be bitter at another team when YOUR team couldn’t score 1 meager run against the Phollies and that game got suspended in the 9th inning.

      Will you complain when that game resumes today and the Reds lose 1-0??

        It’s a joke, dude. I was poking fun at myself lol.

    Confused on why they don’t just pick up where they left off…. where stats don’t get erased and pitchers don’t get do-overs…

      Because that is how they’ve always done it….for whatever that’s worth. If the game ends due to weather and less than half the game is finished, the results are scrapped and they start over. If the game gets past 4.5 innings and is tied, they continue it at a later date. If the game gets past 4.5 innings and someone is winning, they are declared the winner.

      Becase they weren’t at (or beyond)…the half-way point.
