Cardinals vs. Giants rain delay: NLCS Game 3 to resume at 9:05 p.m. CT

Game 3 of the National League Championship Series between the Saint Louis Cardinals and the San Francisco Giants is set to resume at 9:05 p.m. CT, following a rain delay, according to the Giants' official Twitter feed.

The Cardinals hold a 3-1 lead as play will resume in the bottom of the seventh inning with St. Louis batting. Jon Jay will be at the plate with two outs and two runners on base: Daniel Descalso is on third base and Pete Kozma on second.

Jay will not face Matt Cain, who pitched 6⅔ innings for the Giants before the delay forced the end of his start. Before the delay was called, however, left-hander Javier Lopez was announced as a new pitcher. It is unclear whether or not Lopez will still take the mound, though because of the delay, he will not be made to face a batter if the Giants wish to opt for a different pitcher.

Just before the rain delay, which has lasted nearly 3½ hours, Shane Robinson hit home David Freese on a groundout to second base to make the score 3-1.
