(Newser) – A forecast of high winds, heavy rain, and even snow in Philadelphia tonight moved Major League Baseball to push the conclusion of Game 5 of the World Series until at least tomorrow, NBC10 reports. “While obviously we want to finish Game 5 as soon as possible, the forecast for today does not allow for us to continue the game this evening,” commissioner Bud Selig said. The game was tied 2-2 in the sixth inning.
