The Cubs’ three-game series against the Pirates at Wrigley Field began in a rain delay Tuesday.

Puddles had already formed on the tarp over the infield when, 45 minutes before the scheduled game time, the team announced they were pushing back first pitch.

Just before 7:30 p.m., the grounds crew came out to pull the tap. The Cubs announced they were aiming for an 8:15 p.m. first pitch.
