Rain claims a second game this week

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Stop me when you’ve heard this before: Tonight’s game has been postponed due to rain.

For the second time this week, a Brewers game has been postponed due to weather. With storms rolling through the Midwest over the past several days, it has claimed two of the Brewers’ games. It postponed Monday’s game against the Cubs, and now it has postponed Friday’s game against the Pirates.

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader tomorrow, with the usual seven inning games in effect. In Game 1, tonight’s scheduled starter Brett Anderson will pitch. Meanwhile, in Game 2, Aaron Ashby will get another chance, as he has been announced as the scheduled starter for that game. Ashby pitched just three days ago in the second game of the doubleheader against the Cubs, but only went two innings before a rain delay ended his night early. This will be his third major league start.
