Cardinals-Reds game postponed because of rain
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds was postponed on Sunday because of rain.
The final game of the three-game set was called at 12:31 p.m. local time. It will be made up on Sept. 17 as part of a day-night doubleheader.
St. Louis won the first two games of the series 11-3 and 7-3. The teams will meet in the first game after the All-Star break on Friday in Cincinnati.
The rainout stalled the comeback of St. Louis pitcher Steven Matz, who was scheduled to start. Matz returned from the 15-day injured list on Sunday and would have made his first appearance since May 22 when he left the game after four pitches because of left shoulder impingement.
Cardinals: Nolan Arenado was selected to the All-Star team, but has decided not to attend the event in order to rest his back.
Reds: Begin a 10-game homestand on Friday against St. Louis. Cincinnati will also host Miami and Baltimore.
Cardinals: Will kick off a 10-day, eight-game road trip in Cincinnati on Friday. The trip includes stops in Washington and Toronto.
