After rain forced a delay to the beginning of the season for some Cal Ripken teams, it may have provided a perfect opportunity to play baseball on a Sunday afternoon that was considered by many to be perfect weather for America’s favorite pastime.

The matinee game featured the Cardinals and Rockies, and for the first three innings, the two pitchers dueled. Both teams struggled to reach base against solid defense.

The Rockies were able to score a run and had a chance to stretch the lead when Marshek Wiltshire ripped a triple to left center. He might have scored on the play, but third base coach Kurt Deaton gave him the hold sign.

Wiltshire ended up stranded at third.

The Cardinals responded in the bottom of the third by scoring a run, and they attempted to take a lead when third base coach Brandon Hyde gave KC Workman the green light to head home. But the Rockies center fielder threw a strike to catcher Kaiden Long who applied the tag to record the out.

The Rockies (1-0) went on to win 5-1.
