12:10 p.m., RHP Carlos Martinez vs. RHP Homer Bailey, FS Midwest/KMOXApril 15, 2018 at 8:37 am #48902April 15, 2018 at 9:48 am #48905April 15, 2018 at 10:50 am #48908
If you look at the Doppler radar it shows nothing but green stuff heading directly to the Cincinnati area. I’d say its a safe bet this one is postponed. Surely the field at GABP must be soaked by now. Joe Maddon was bemoaning the fact yesterday after the game that both the Braves and Cubs had to play in terrible conditions.

Cautiously optimistic that pitching and offense are improving, but rest of the month vs. Cubs, Mets, Pirates will give better trend information. Nonetheless, it’s pretty clear who’s carrying this team offensively right now:
Molina .268 .829
Pham .327 .930
J-Mart .373 1.067
DeJong .246 .769
Ozuna .288 .703
Fowler .196 .621
Carpenter .174 .703
Wong .162 .441
I do hope they play today to keep the momentum going.April 15, 2018 at 11:08 am #48910
Cubs have already been postponed vs Atlanta.April 15, 2018 at 11:26 am #48911grayssportsalmanaccParticipantFree
It looks like this system could be out of cincy within a few hrs if they really want to get this one in, I would just have to assume the field conditions are terrible…April 15, 2018 at 11:44 am #48912
Maddon whining about the poor conditions yesterday makes no sense. The home team (in this case, the Cubs) makes the call on whether or not the game is going to be played. The umps don’t take over until lineup cards are exchanged. So why did they play, then, Joe?April 15, 2018 at 11:46 am #48913
I am not there today, but with modern fields, they can be playable even after a lot of rain. Between the infield being covered and good drainage systems in the outfield, they can have a good head start on decent conditions.
In Cincy, the gates are open, but the game start has been delayed. No new time for first pitch yet.
Today's game will not start on time, but we are optimistic that today’s game will be played based on our weather reports. Next update at approximately 1:15 p.m.

So many games already postponed today, It sounds like they will try their hardest to get this one in, i hope nobody gets hurtApril 15, 2018 at 1:25 pm #48925
Any word from Riverfront on a possible start time? I keep having to run upstairs from my pool table to check and see if the game has started.

Good!April 15, 2018 at 3:16 pm #48934
A two run homer by Bader in the 2nd has the Cards on top 2-0 early.

Martinez pitch count is high but he has made the pitch to get out of trouble. 2-0 after four.April 15, 2018 at 4:09 pm #48939PadsFSParticipantPaid - Annual
He made it through 5 with 83 pitches. That’s not too bad. He should get to 7 and still be below 120.April 15, 2018 at 4:20 pm #48942
10 Ks for Martinez through six scoreless innings. I wondered with the weather and opponent if he would be at his best today. I shouldn’t have wondered.April 15, 2018 at 4:20 pm #48943Cardinals2016ParticipantFree
Matt Carpenter will be leading off the inning! Maybe he will get a hit!!!April 15, 2018 at 4:21 pm #48944
Gotta be a leadoff walk…April 15, 2018 at 4:25 pm #48945
With an 8 pitch sixth he is at 91. Good job!April 15, 2018 at 4:45 pm #48947
Martinez very good performance. Our ace is pitching like one!April 15, 2018 at 4:53 pm #48948
Hamilton just took Lyons deep. Hitting .091 from the right side. 3-1April 15, 2018 at 4:53 pm #48949
Wong with an error Votto up.April 15, 2018 at 4:55 pm #48950colhuskerParticipantFree
Routine plays that are botched tend to bite you in the backside. Wong HAS to make that play
