Major League officials, the Houston Astros and the Philadelphia Phillies decided to move Game 3 of the Fall Classic to Tuesday, instead of Monday night as it was supposed to be, because of the rain.

The fifth game, the last confirmed so far with the World Series tied 1-1, will be for Syndeergard and in the event of a hypothetical Game 6 it will be Zack Wheeler (1-2, 2.67), revealed the manager.

Shortly before 6 pm, the field was covered by the traditional giant tarp covering the diamond and part of the outfield and both teams finished their batting practice, although the Phillies had just started.
