This year, MLB changed its rules so that a game that was tied after becoming a regulation game and was halted by rain would be a suspended game and not a tie game. Tie games have to be replayed in their entirety.
And we have our first suspended game of the season! The Brewers and Marlins waited out three rain delays before the umpires suspended the game with the score tied 2-2 with the Brewers getting ready to bat in the top of the 11th at Dolphins Stadium. The game will start at 7:05 pm ET and then the regularly scheduled game will start about 30 minutes later.
Tony Graffanino of the Breweres was kicked out of the game and, presumably, the umpires will make him sit in the clubhouse until the regularly scheduled game start.
From checking Retrosheet, it appears that this is the first time the Marlins have had a suspended game. The Brewers last had one on June 15, 2001 at home against Kansas City when a bank of lights went out at Miller Park.
