Game set to start at 3:45

UPDATE: The game is now expected to start around 3:45pm.

There was a heavy downpour for a little while, but it wasn’t as severe as expected, or as severe as the radar showed as the system was moving up Interstate 75. The thinking was that it was better to wait out this weather and then get going than it is to start the game, have it delayed minutes later and either have to go to the bullpen early or force the starting pitchers to warm up again.
