UPDATE: Cardinals-Brewers series postponed, next series adjusted after more positive COVID-19 tests Saturday
MILWAUKEE (KY3/AP) - A weekend road series between the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers has been postponed after multiple positive COVID-19 tests within the Cardinals organization for the second straight day.
Two Cardinals players were flagged for positive tests Friday, forcing the series opener in Milwaukee to be called off. One additional player and three staff members with the St. Louis Cardinals have tested positive for the coronavirus Saturday, according to a person familiar with the situation.
The teams had hoped to resume play Saturday and make up Friday’s game as part of a doubleheader Sunday.
The Cardinals also announced adjustments to their next series against the Detroit Tigers. Rather than splitting the four-game series as scheduled, the teams will play four games in Detroit from Tuesday-Thursday, including a Wednesday doubleheader. The Cardinals and Tigers will serve as the home club for two games each at Comerica Park.
