Cardinals, Rockies experiment with shortened inning breaks

ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Cardinals and Colorado Rockies tried to speed up the pace of play on Tuesday night and it was hardly noticed.

Major League Baseball experimented with having the timing clock between half innings set at 1 minute, 45 seconds. Since 2016, the clock has been set at 2:05 for locally televised games and 2:25 for nationally televised games, down 20 seconds for each from 2015.

"We all knew early in the day," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said after the team beat the Rockies 3-2. "Lance (Lynn) was excited about it. He asked, `Why isn't it always like this?' He feels like he has to wait around for commercials to be finished. To be honest I didn't even notice. I notice the real long breaks because we're just sitting around waiting. So I'm always a fan of keeping the game going."
