Luke Weaver: Cardinals-Cubs postponed Wednesday

Adjust Comment Print

The Cubs took no chances in postponing Wednesday's game against the Cardinals more than four hours before the scheduled first pitch.

During a Tuesday appearance on Chicago's ESPN 1000, Rizzo had this to say about possibly playing fewer games in a season.

With temperatures in the mid-30s and rain and snow in the forecast, the game was called about 4½ hours before the scheduled first pitch and rescheduled for Thursday afternoon.

It's the fifth time the Cubs have been postponed this season (once in Cincinnati, the home opener against Pittsburgh, Sunday against Atlanta, Monday against St. Louis and today).

Chatwood (0-3) issued seven walks in 4 2/3 innings, one off his career high.
