ST. LOUIS — After lightning flashed in the sky beyond Busch Stadium, and the forecast showed persistent rain rolling in, the Cubs’ game against the Cardinals on Wednesday was postponed.
The game is scheduled to be made up on Thursday in a split double header. The first game is set for 12:15 p.m. and the second remains at 6:45.
Right-hander Marcus Stroman is penciled in to start the afternoon game, and the Cubs have yet to name their Game 2 starter. The Cubs pushed back left-hander Justin Steele’s start from Wednesday to Friday.
