Astros Vs. Pirates: Rain Delay Pushes First Pitch Back

The rubber match between the Houston Astros and Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday afternoon at PNC Park is being delayed due to rain. First pitch is now scheduled for 2:00 p.m. ET as the tarp is coming off of the field.

A weather system is pushing through the northeast, bringing along plenty of precipitation. This could mean a number of delays throughout the afternoon.

It will be interesting to see how the starting pitchers handle the delays, as A.J. Burnett is taking the hill for the Pirates while Wandy Rodriguez will be doing so for the Astros. Neither pitcher had begun their pre-game warm ups before the delay was announced.
