HOUSTON, Texas (KIAH) — Today’s the day! Rain forecasted Monday forced Major League Baseball to postpone Monday’s Game 4 of the American League Division Series between the Houston Astros and Chicago White Sox, to today.
The game has been rescheduled for Tuesday afternoon at 1:07 p.m. at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago.
The Astros have a 2-1 lead in the series after Chicago avoided the sweep with a 12-6 win at home on Sunday night. José Urquidy was scheduled to start Monday’s game for Houston, with Carlos Rodón pitching for the White Sox.
The threat for severe weather is in Monday’s forecast in Chicago on Monday. Damaging winds, hail, and a limited chance for tornadic storms is in the forecast for portions of the Midwest today as a very strong low pressure system zips through the center of the U.S.
