Brewers’ home opener postponed after Cardinals player tests positive for COVID-19

UPDATE (WKOW) -- Major League Baseball confirmed that two members of the St. Louis Cardinals organization have tested positive for COVID-19 delaying Friday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The announcement came in a press release sent Friday.

The game originally scheduled for today, the home-opener for the Brewers, has been rescheduled to Sunday, Aug. 2 at 1:10 p.m.

Saturday's 6:10 p.m. contest between the two teams remains scheduled as normal.

NEW YORK (AP) — According to a person with knowledge of the situation, Friday’s game between St. Louis and Milwaukee has been postponed after multiple Cardinals employees tested positive for the coronavirus.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the postponement had not been announced.

Two other games scheduled for Friday involving the Marlins, Nationals, Blue Jays and Phillies had already been postponed because of an outbreak among Miami players and two positive tests on Philadelphia’s coaching staff. 

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- The Milwaukee Brewers' home opener has been postponed because of a positive coronavirus test, according to an ESPN reporter.

A Cardinals player reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.

The positive case forced a postponement. There's no word when or if the game will be rescheduled.
