PITTSBURGH (AP) — Rain has wiped out Tuesday night’s game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates.

The storm hit at the end of the second inning with the Pirates leading 4-2, and the game was called after a delay of 1 hour, 24 minutes. No makeup date was immediately announced.

The cancellation allows St. Louis starter Jake Westbrook to reset his ERA to 0.00. The right-hander has struggled against the Pirates in his career, and Pittsburgh turned five consecutive singles in the first inning into four runs.

Pittsburgh starter Jonathan Sanchez — who came in with a 12.96 ERA — allowed two runs in the first inning but retired the side in order in the second.
