Cincinnati (Fox 19) The Reds and Cardinals got all of six pitches in before the rain started in St Louis. The tarp covered the field and play was stopped after Drew Stubbs opened the game with a leadoff walk.
This is the first of a three game series between the NL Central division rivals. It's the first time St Louis and Cincinnati have squared off in 2011.
Rain is in the forecast all weekend in St Louis where the next game is scheduled for 4:10 ET Saturday afternoon.
