MLB officials are reportedly set to meet with the Houston Astros and the Philadelphia Phillies this afternoon to discuss the forecast for Monday night’s World Series game in Philadelphia. With first pitch scheduled for 8:03 p.m. ET, it looks like rain is going to move into the area just as the game begins, and isn’t supposed to let up until Tuesday morning.
The chance of rain moves from 56% at 7:00 p.m. to 99% at 8:00, and the percentages remain in the 90s until 10:00 p.m. The teams are going to discuss whether the rain can or should be played through or if Game 3 will need to be delayed.
