Crew Rained Out, Game Postponed Until Monday

Massive winds, an eventual downpour, and the threat of tornadoes may be the perfect recipe for Bear's Best Night Ever, but they are not a good combination when you're trying to play a baseball game. Because of these three things, the 2-0 deficit the Brewers found themselves in during the 2nd inning of Friday's game against the Cardinals has been erased, and the Brewers will start this one from scratch on Monday.

Both teams had the day off Monday, so instead of waiting until the next possible day, August 31st, the Brewers can Cardinals will make up this game on Monday night at 7:15pm. There's no word yet on whether or not this game will be televised, but if it is it will be during an already action packed night of Monday night TV (24 finale and another episode of WWE RAW!).

That means the series will officially start on Saturday, with a 12:10 game to be televised on WMLW. The Sunday game will take place at 1:15pm on FSN Wisconsin, and the series finale will be the Monday night make-up. Yovani Gallardo could be back on the mound for that one, but that will be a decision left up to Ken Macha.

So sorry Colby Rasmus and the St. Louis Cardinals, your 2-0 lead meant nothing. Hopefully the Brewers can take advantage of their second life, and do some good work throughout the entire series.
