CHICAGO – The Cubs will play at least another day.
The North Siders elimination game with the Marlins has been postponed due to rain in the forecast.
“Today’s scheduled Game 2 of the Wild Card Series between the host Chicago Cubs and the Miami Marlins has been postponed due to forecasted inclement conditions, Major League Baseball announced today.”
Game 2 is now scheduled for Friday at 1:08 p.m. at Wrigley Field, unless it is the only game of the day. In that case, first pitch moves to 6:08 p.m.
Earlier this season, Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was critical of Major League Baseball’s indecisiveness when it came to calling a game.
Yu Darvish was slated to start Thursday against Sixto Sanchez.
