CHICAGO — The scheduled game Saturday between the Chicago Cubs and Atlanta Braves has been postponed because of rain.

Rain was forecast all day in Chicago. The game was called about two hours before the scheduled first pitch at 1:20 p.m. No makeup date was immediately announced.

John Lackey had been scheduled to start for the Cubs, while the Braves planned to send Julio Teheran to the mound.
