The cardinal in St. Louis has two positive tests for COVID-19, which led to baseball in the Major League, which postponed the game on Friday afternoon in the breweries in Milwaukee, reported.
MLB’s quick decision to postpone Friday’s game, which was scheduled for 2:10 p.m. days.
The postponed game was rescheduled as part of Sunday’s traditional double-headed game, with the first game starting at 2:10 p.m. ET. The match on Saturday remains scheduled for 19:10 ET.
MLB said the postponement allowed the cardinals enough time to do additional tests and track contacts. A source told ESPN’s Jesse Rodgers that if what was happening to the Cardinals had happened before Marlin’s outburst, Friday’s game at Miller Park would still be played.
“We support Major League Baseball’s decision to postpone today’s game and look forward to playing our opening home as soon as conditions allow,” Brewers President / General Manager David Stearns said in a statement. “The health and safety of our players and employees are and will continue to be our top priorities.”
The Cardinals last played in Minnesota Gemini on Wednesday night.
This brings the number of teams that stay in action on Friday to six. The Brewers and Cardinals will join the Marlins, Philadelphia Phillies, Washington Nationals and Toronto Blue Jays as teams affected by dropping out of positive tests.
The Cardinals’ positives are the first positive tests the sport has seen off the East Coast since last week’s regular season.
