The Sky Bet League 2 fixture between AFC Wimbledon and Portsmouth has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. Artemi Panarin Jersey . The lunchtime kick-off, which was due to be shown live on Sky Sports 1, has been called off as Storm Katie continues to batter southern England.Wimbledons Twitter account revealed that a pitch inspection had been set for 9.15am on Monday morning after heavy rain overnight, but the game at Kingsmeadow has now been postponed. A tweet from the club said: Game off. Our match versus Portsmouth has been postponed.Both sides are chasing a play-off place in League 2. Referee Andy Madley told Sky Sports News HQ he had to take the players safety into consideration when making his decision to postpone the game.As you can see there is plenty of standing water all over the field of play and the water unfortunately isnt draining when we tried to put a fork into the pitch, he said.You look at the rest of the field and it doesnt look too bad until you actually get on top of it and kick a football around and, apart from the fact that the game would turn farcical, Ive got to take the players safety into account and unfortunately it is not worth the risk this morning.Weve obviously got fans travelling up from Portsmouth, the club have gone to all the effort to get the game on and that all comes into account but ultimately we do have to take players safety into account and it is just not worth that risk today.The groundsman at Kingsmeadow tried to ensure the game went ahead but the threat of further rain meant postponement was inevitable, according to Madley.He initially thought if you could put a fork into the ground then the water would disappear, and on the grassy areas it was doing, but unfortunately it is a sand-based pitch, he said.And whenever he was putting the pitchfork into the sandy areas the water was just coming straight back up so we knew that even as we played on it if we got any more rain, even if we managed to get rid of the surface water, it would eventually come back.

The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. CINCINNATI -- Yu Darvish is hitting his stride. But, that doesnt mean the Texas Rangers wont continue to be careful with how they utilize their right-handed ace.Darvish, 30, is scheduled to make his 11th start of the season on Wednesday night in the finale of a two-game interleague series with the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park. And, hell do so on six days rest.Its a positive, Darvish told reporters last week via an interpreter. I didnt feel like I needed it, but getting rest is beneficial for me.Darvish, whos coming off Tommy John surgery, is 2-0 with a 1.74 ERA with 22 strikeouts in 20 2/3 innings in his last three starts. Hes made six straight quality starts, matching the longest run this season by a Rangers pitcher.Hes been dominant in interleague play, going 7-2 with a 1.90 ERA in 11 starts against the National League.Darvish will be facing Cincinnati for the first time since June 30, 2013 when he gave up only four hits in 6 2/3 innings with four walks and eight strikeouts in a 3-2 Texas win.Hell get a chance to take his hacks in an NL park on Wednesday. He has two hits in 12 career at-bats.Right-hander Tim Adleman will take the mound for Cincinnati on Wednesday. Its his sixth career start and second since he was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Aug. 16. Hell be facing the Rangers for the first time in his career.Cincinnati is 22-14 and has won eight of 11 series since the All-Star break. The Reds will bee looking for their ninth series win on Wednesday if they can sweep the Rangers after a 3-0 win on Tuesday. Adidas Gabriel Carlsson Jersey. .The Reds are riding the red-hot bat of first baseman Joey Votto, who is hitting .455 since the All-Star break after batting just .229 in April and .200 in May. Votto went 2-for-3 with two RBI on Tuesday.I think what Joey has accomplished with his batting average and on-base percentage is phenomenal, said manager Bryan Price. Anybody can struggle for a couple of months or even a season. Thats not unique, so Id have to say Im more surprised at what hes doing now. I dont think anybody saw coming what he went through in April and May, but its not foreign.Texas recent acquisition -- catcher Jonathan Lucroy -- is a bona fide Reds killer.During his career with the Milwaukee Brewers, Lucroy has 13 home runs, 45 RBI, and 42 runs in his career against Cincinnati, all his highest totals against any opponent. Lucroys 13 homers are nearly double his total against any other club.Lucroy went 0-for-3 with a walk on Tuesday. But, hell get another crack at Cincinnati pitching on Wednesday.He has homered in three of his past six games at Great American Ball Park.Cincinnati now leads the all-time series 8-7 after Tuesdays win. The teams split a two-game series at Globe Life Park in Arlington in June.
