DETROIT AT ST LOUIS, POSTPONED (RAIN)

ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- For the first time in 10 years, a World Series game has been scuttled by Mother Nature.

Game Four of the World Series between the Detroit Tigers and St. Louis Cardinals was postponed by rain.

It marked the first time a game in the Fall Classic was postponed since the opener of the 1996 World Series between the New York Yankees and Atlanta Braves.

The Tigers will try to even the series at two games apiece on Thursday night, when rain is again in the forecast. Game Five temporarily has been bumped to Friday night, which originally was an off day.

It looked like every effort would be made to play Wednesday's game. But after a delay of 1 hour, 51 minutes, the game was called at 9:18 p.m. local time.

Tigers manager Jim Leyland and Cardinals skipper Tony La Russa have yet to announce their starting pitchers for Game Four. Jeremy Bonderman was scheduled to start for Detroit, while Jeff Suppan - the Most Valuable Player of the National League Championship Series - was slated to take the mound for St. Louis.
