ALCS Game 3 moved up; NLCS Game 2 on Friday night
NEW YORK -- Game 2 of the National League Championship Series between the Mets and the Cardinals will start at 8:05 p.m. ET Friday, and Game 3 of the American League Championship Series between the Tigers and Athletics will start at 4:30 p.m.
Major League Baseball said Thursday that concerns about the weather Friday night in Detroit prompted the switch from the original start time of 8:19 p.m. The Tigers took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series Wednesday night, winning in Oakland 8-5.
Friday was to have been an off day in the NLCS, but Game 1 in New York was rained out Wednesday. The Mets-Cardinals series was to begin Thursday night.
