Rain pain in Detroit
A review of Wednesday's Major League Baseball action as rain hits Detroit and the St Louis Cardinals claim victory.
Game Four of the American League Championship Series between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees was postponed because of bad weather on Wednesday night - although Comerica Park was still dry when the game was called off.
The first pitch was scheduled for 8:07pm local time, but shortly before then the crowd were informed of a delay.
A radar forecast for the Detroit area was then posted on the scoreboard, as if to explain to fans why there was no baseball despite dry conditions at the time.
The postponement was announced after a delay of around 70 minutes, while rain eventually started falling a further 15 minutes later.
Game Four will now take place on Thursday afternoon. Detroit leads the best-of-seven series 3-0.
Rain also affected Game Three of the National League Championship Series, but after a delay of three and a half hours the St Louis Cardinals beat the San Francisco Giants 3-1.
Matt Carpenter hit a two-run homer after replacing an injured Carlos Beltran as the Cardinals overcame the lengthy delay in the seventh inning.
They now lead the series 2-1.
