Cardinals-Braves rained out, day-night doubleheader Sunday
ATLANTA (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals’ game at the Atlanta Braves on Saturday was postponed because of rain.
The game will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader Sunday at 2:10 p.m. and 7:08 p.m. Under pandemic rules, both games will be scheduled for seven innings.
St. Louis right-hander Adam Wainwright (4-5, 3.95 ERA) and Atlanta left-hander Drew Smyly (3-3, 5.63) are scheduled to start the opener. Wainwright is 9-4 with a 3.63 ERA in 14 starts and five relief appearances against the Braves. Smyly will face St. Louis for the second time in his career.
Lefty Kwang Hyun Kim (1-4, 3.72) is slated to pitch the nightcap for the Cardinals. Atlanta’s starter was unclear.
The three-time defending NL East champion Braves won the first two games of the series and began the day 5½ games back in the division.
St. Louis began the day four games back in the NL Central. The Cardinals have lost five straight and eight of nine on the road.
