World Series 2011: Game 6 Postponed Due To Weather, Set For Thursday

The St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers agreed to postpone Game 6 of the 2011 World Series according to a tweet just released from MLB Public Relations, moving the game to Thursday night at 7:05 following concerns about a possible storm rolling over St. Louis at gametime. Both sides met earlier this afternoon to discuss the possibilities and agreed that it would be better to play the possible deciding game of the series in the better conditions expected over the rest of the week; the game was canceled earlier than expected to allow fans whose travel plans revolved around World Series tickets as much time as possible to figure out their next move.

Game 7, if necessary, has been moved to Friday night, which means the Cardinals might have the chance to throw ace Chris Carpenter out for one more go-around after his Game 1 and Game 5 starts.
