ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- The line of storms moving through the region brought heavy rains and strong winds, but should leave the late-evening baseball game unaffected.
News 4 meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt says the front trailing the major storms could bring a few showers, but ticket holders shouldn't hang their heads.
"Most of these thunderstorms were way out ahead of the front, so the front itself will be moving through right around game time," he said. "So there's a chance we could have a delay with some rain at the very beginning of the game, but I do think we'll get the game in."
Kent also added that once the front moves through, it should be a beautiful night at the ballpark with temperatures in the mid-70s as the Cardinals look for a sweep agains Arizona.
