Pittsburgh Pirates' Andrew McCutchen (22) warms up on deck as storm clouds roll over PNC Park and rain starts falling during the second inning of a baseball game against the St. Louis Cardinals in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. The game was suspended in the bottom of the second inning and subsequently postponed.
PITTSBURGH — Rain has wiped out Tuesday night's game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates.
The storm hit at the end of the second inning with the Pirates leading 4-2, and the game was called after a delay of 1 hour, 24 minutes. No makeup date was immediately announced.
The cancellation allows St. Louis starter Jake Westbrook to reset his ERA to 0.00. The right-hander has struggled against the Pirates in his career, and Pittsburgh turned five consecutive singles in the first inning into four runs.
Pittsburgh starter Jonathan Sanchez — who came in with a 12.96 ERA — allowed two runs in the first inning but retired the side in order in the second.
