Game 6 was banged for a day Wednesday because of the threat of wet weather in the St. Louis area. The decision was made at 2 p.m. It started raining three hours later, but the rain subsided by a little after 7 p.m. The game probably could have been played, but oh, well.
Anyhoo, here are some photos from Ron Jenkins, Star-Telegram staff photographer. Enjoy.
