Tuesday's game between the Astros and Pirates was delayed right from the start because of a heavy rainstorm that ran over Pittsburgh. Fortunately, the rain has died down and the game has now finally been scheduled to restart at 7:20 p.m. CT, as reported by MLB.com beat writer Brian McTaggert on Twitter.

There may be more rain in the forecast for Pittsburgh as the game goes along, so there's no guarantee that the game is going to finish on Tuesday night. Hopefully, the teams can play a quick and tidy game as the Astros seek their second straight win at PNC Park.
