SHARE Cubs-SD postponed, rescheduled as part of Wednesday doubleheader

Monday night’s series opener between the Cubs and Padres at Wrigley Field was postponed by rain, the team announced a few minutes after the scheduled start.

The teams are scheduled to make up the game at 12:05 p.m. Wednesday as part of a split doubleheader, to be followed at 7:05 p.m. by the regularly scheduled game.

Monday’s scheduled starters both were pushed back to Tuesday night’s game: Cubs left-hander Jon Lester (3-1, 1.58 ERA) and Padres right-hander Cesar Vargas (0-1, 1.10).

Tuesday’s scheduled Cubs starter, Kyle Hendricks (2-2, 3.10), moves to Wednesday’s early start with John Lackey (4-1, 4.02) staying on schedule for Wednesday night’s game.

It’s already the third postponement at Wrigley Field this season.

Rain is also forecast for Tuesday night.
