Impacted Games

Baltimore Orioles @ Detroit Tigers, 7:10 pm – Breezy conditions expected in Detroit tonight. Winds will blow RIGHT TO LEFT at 10-15 mph, so not much of an impact. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s.

Philadelphia Phillies @ Texas Rangers, 8:05 pm – Strong winds will blow IN FROM CENTER at 20-25 mph this evening. This will have a little bit more of an impact coming from the open area of the outfield. Temperatures will be near 80.

Cincinnati Reds @ Chicago Cubs, 8:05 pm – The Friendly Confines won’t be so friendly for pitching tonight. Winds will blow OUT TO CENTER at 15-20 mph with higher gusts. Temperatures will be warm and humidity will be high; a perfect recipe for big offensive numbers.

Colorado Rockies @ Minnesota Twins, 8:10 pm – Showers are storms are possible in the Twin Cities tonight, and a delay is possible. While we don’t think a PPD is likely here, this is still one spot we will watch closely this afternoon. Wind won’t be a factor but both humidity and temperatures will be higher than normal.

Boston Red Sox @ St. Louis Cardinals, 8:15 pm – More wind to contend with in St. Louis as the breeze will blow OUT TO LEFT at 10-15 mph with higher gusts. Temperatures will be in the mid to low 80s.

New York Yankees @ Kansas City Royals, 8:15 pm – Same goes for right down the road in KC. Winds will blow OUT TO LEFT a little stronger, at 15-20 mph. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s.

Los Angeles Dodgers @ San Francisco Giants, 10:15 pm – Some isolated showers are possible this evening in San Fran. Maybe a delay here, but not a big risk of one. Winds will be breezy out of the northwest, but won’t have much impact in that ballpark. Temperatures will be in the upper 50s.
