PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Game 3 of the World Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros was postponed by rain with the matchup tied 1-1.

The rainout moved Game 3 to Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park, when the weather was supposed to be much better.

The washout was announced hours before the scheduled first pitch. Game 4 will now be played Wednesday and Game 5 is set for the scheduled travel day on Thursday night. Game 5 will compete with the NFL game that has the Philadelphia Eagles in Houston against the Texans.

Astros manager Dusty Baker had said Lance McCullers Jr. would stay as the Game 3 if there was a rainout. Noah Syndergaard had been scheduled to start Monday night for the Phillies.
