Cards-Cubs game postponed on Tuesday
With forecasts calling for rain and sub-freezing wind chills throughout the rest of the day, the Cubs opted to postpone Tuesday’s scheduled 7:05 pm CT game against the Cardinals. A makeup date for the game will be announced at a later date.
The day off will be the third in four days for the Cardinals, who opened the season with a 3-0 victory over the Cubs on Sunday. That game was preceded by a day off in Chicago, and the Cardinals had another on Monday, while the other 28 Major League clubs played their season openers. Another off day awaits the team in Cincinnati on Thursday.
The Cardinals did hold a one-hour workout on Monday and are expected to report to Wrigley Field on Tuesday for a short workout, even though there will be no game. Right-hander Lance Lynn was scheduled to start on Tuesday against Chicago’s Jake Arrieta.
The Cardinals have not yet announced how Tuesday’s postponement may affect their rotation plans.
