Mets, Cardinals Game Postponed a Day Due to Rain

Daylong rain caused Game 5 of the Major League Baseball's National League championship series between the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets to be postponed Monday night.

The game was rescheduled for Tuesday night at Busch Stadium. The teams are tied at two games each in the best-of-seven series.

For the second time in the NLCS, the teams will travel without a day off. They'll play Game 6 at Shea Stadium in New York on Wednesday night, as scheduled.

Tom Glavine (15-7) of the Mets and Jeff Weaver (5-4) of the Cardinals both had been scheduled to start Monday on three days' rest. St. Louis ace Chris Carpenter is slated to start Game 6 on Wednesday against rookie John Maine.

The Mets even the series by winning 12-5 Sunday night.

Last Wednesday's NLCS opener in New York was rained out, pushing back the start of the series and forcing the first four games to be played without a day off.
