MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - From surprising to expected by baseball fans, the anticipated home opener for the Milwaukee Brewers will have to wait one more day.

Reported by ESPN’s Jeff Passan, The Brewers-Cardinals doubleheader in Milwaukee on Sunday which included Friday’s make up game has been postponed as well.

Now the Brewers will have to wait until Monday, at 7:00 PM to host the White Sox and finally play their first game at Miller Park in 2020.

After postponing Friday’s home opener due to two positive COVID-19 tests on the St. Louis Cardinals, Saturday’s game met the same fate when four new cases were recorded on St. Louis’ team, three from the staff and one from a player.

The best case scenario for the Brewers is they now have four days off in-between their series at Pittsburgh and hosting the White Sox, while the Cardinals team never left their hotel in Milwaukee or crossed paths with any Brewers players squashing the fear of the virus being passed off to Milwaukee.
