Forecast of heavy rain in New York could affect ALCS — and NLCS, too

A threatening forecast of heavy rain Wednesday in New York could alter not only the American League Championship Series but the NLCS, too, according to ESPN, which cited unidentified sources.

The forecast as of Tuesday morning (via weather.com) calls for a 100 percent chance of rain Wednesday in New York, with around a half an inch of precipitation expected and locally heavier rainfall possible with temperatures in the mid-60s and winds at 10-15 mph.

With the possibility that Wednesday’s ALCS Game 4 between the Astros and Yankees could be rained out, MLB is considering moving a potential NLCS Game 5 between the Nationals and Cardinals to that night, the sources told ESPN.

The NLCS schedule becomes a moot point if the Nationals, who hold a 3-0 series lead over the Cardinals, finish a sweep in Game 4 Tuesday in Washington.
