The Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies will have to wait one more day to resume the 2022 World Series. Game 3 of the Fall Classic has been postponed due to rain, MLB announced Monday evening just about an hour before first pitch. It will instead be played Tuesday, and the rest of the series will be pushed back one day. There will still be an off-day for travel between Thursday’s Game 5 and, if necessary, Friday’s Game 6.

Here is the updated 2022 World Series schedule:

  • Monday, Oct. 31: Postponed
  • Tues, Nov. 1: Game 3 at 8:03 p.m. ET in Philadelphia
  • Weds, Nov. 2: Game 4 at 8:03 p.m. ET in Philadelphia
  • Thurs, Nov. 3: Game 5 at 8:03 p.m. ET in Philadelphia
  • Fri., Nov. 4: Off day
  • Sat., Nov. 5: Game 6 at 8:03 p.m. ET in Houston (if necessary)
  • Sun., Nov. 6: Game 7 at 8:03 p.m. ET in Houston (if necessary)

Monday’s postponement is the first in the Fall Classic since Game 6 of the 2011 World Series. 

Light rain started to fall at Citizens Bank Park around 6 p.m. ET and will increase in intensity around 9 p.m. ET, and continue until early Tuesday morning. Current conditions suggest the Astros and Phillies could begin Game 3 as scheduled, but once the rain intensifies later in the night, they would have to hit pause and the game would likely be suspended. MLB makes all weather-related decisions in the postseason and the league prefers to play an uninterrupted nine innings whenever possible.
