Brewers-Pirates postponed, makeup doubleheader Saturday

PITTSBURGH (AP) – A game scheduled between the Milwaukee Brewers and Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night was postponed because of rain and will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader Saturday.

The first game will be played at 2:35 p.m. ET and the nightcap at 7:05 p.m. Both games are scheduled for seven innings under pandemic rules.

Friday’s game was called 1 hour, 5 minutes after the scheduled start time.

A heavy thunderstorm swept through the area about an hour before the game was eventually postponed, and the weather forecast called for more rain.
