Rain Delay At Futures Game

I ducked into Busch Stadium a few minutes ago just in time to see about four batters in the top of the first inning of the Futures Game -- enough to note that Chris Tillman, the Orioles' stud pitching prospect who was starting for the U.S. team, looked to be overthrowing his fastball.

And then the skies opened up, and now the tarp is on the field, and there is word that this line of thunderstorms stretches some 200 miles to the west.

Question: What happens if the Futures Game gets rained out? Do they play a doubleheader next year?

Anyway, it's 2-0, World team, after half an inning.

Nationals shortstop Danny Espinosa is hitting ninth in the U.S. lineup, if we ever resume play.
