Game 6 World Series postponed

ST. LOUIS -- Game 6 of the World Series has been postponed by MLB.

The game will be played at 7:05 p.m. central time on Thursday. The game can be seen on Fox and heard on ESPN 103.3 FM. Game 7, if necessary, is Friday at 7:05 p.m. central time.

MLB released a statement saying that the game was postponed "due to inclement weather and the forecast for rainfall throughout the remainder of the day."

"Given the desire to play a game of this magnitude without interruption, and an outlook with better conditions over the next two nights, Major League Baseball, along with the Cardinals and the Rangers, determined that making the decision early would be the most prudent course of action to allow fans enough time to plan accordingly," MLB said in its release.

Joe Torre, MLB’s Executive Vice President for Baseball Operations, will speak to reporters at 3:15 p.m. local time.
