SHARE Sunday’s game with Rockies delayed by rain

Sunday’s game between the Cubs and Rockies at Wrigley Field has been delayed by rain.

Workers pulled the tarp over the infield more than an hour before the game as a drizzle turned into a steady rain that shows no signs of subsiding as game time approached.

Today’s forecast calls for rain and a heavier thundershower.

The Rockies are making their only appearance of the season at Wrigley Field, which means whether or not today’s game is played is not up to the Cubs or Rockies but Major League Baseball. There are no logical makeup dates, especially considering the Cubs just started a stretch of 20 games in 20 days.

That means fans could be in for a lengthy delay because even though the game between the last-place Rockies and the fifth-place Cubs will not impact division-and-wildcard races, the league office prefers teams play their entire 162-game schedule whenever possible because a team’s final record impacts draft-and-waiver orders.
