This wasn't a rain delay. It was the first pregame standoff delay in NLCS history as neither the Cardinals' Joe Kelly nor the Dodgers' Scott Van Slyke wanted to make the first move on Friday night before Game 6. The two players stood in front of their dugouts during the national anthem and then refused to move for more than 13 minutes, frozen in position. Finally the home plate umpire had to order them into the dugout. Kelly took the first step toward the dugout, and Van Slyke raised his arm in triumph as he retreated to his dugout, where he got congratulated by teammates. Your browser does not support iframes. The Dodgers, who have been accused of "Mickey Mouse" behavior throughout the series, seemed to be pretty amused by the standoff, as did the Cards -- and all the people who watched it.
