Rain postpones Indians game



CLEVELAND — Intermittent rain at Progressive Field has postponed the game between the Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians on Saturday night without a pitch being thrown.

The teams and fans waited for exactly two hours before a decision was made. A makeup date was not announced. The White Sox return to Cleveland for a three-game series, scheduled for Sept. 20-22.

With radar showing a line of thunderstorms approaching, the infield was covered minutes before the scheduled 7:05 p.m. start, though it was not raining. There was a brief shower and some occasional drizzle, but for the most part fans sat in the stands watching other games or old cartoons on the giant videoboard.

Neither manager immediately announced if their pitching plans had been altered.
