ST. LOUIS (AP) – The Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals are set to play back-to-back doubleheaders this weekend after Friday night’s game was postponed because of rain.
Heavy rain forced the series opener to be called off.
The Reds and NL Central-leading Cardinals will now play day-night doubleheaders on both Saturday and Sunday.
A rainout in St. Louis in early June forced a makeup as part of Saturday’s twin bill.
The Cardinals lead the Chicago Cubs by one game in the division.
