World Series Rainout, Astros-Phils To Play Game 3 Tuesday
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Game 3 of the World Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros was postponed by rain Monday night 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 all clear.
The teams worked out on the field before the tarp was put down around 5 p.m., about three 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, of all teams, the Philadelphia Eagles in Houston against the Texans.
Game Three of the 2022 #WorldSeries presented by Capital One has been postponed and rescheduled for Tuesday at 8:03 p.m. (ET). The remainder of the Fall Classic will push back by a day. Tickets for all games remain valid for the game number on each ticket. pic.twitter.com/IZaM66l0Ql

The Astros had not named a Game 4 starter and the Phillies were going with lefty Ranger Suárez.
The Phillies clinched the NL Championship Series with a win against San Diego on a rainy, gusty Sunday.

The Phillies famously won the 2008 World Series with a Game 5 victory that took three days to complete because of heavy rain.
