The White Sox’ scheduled game against the Houston Astros Monday has been postponed due to rain and will be made up as part of a straight doubleheader Tuesday at Guaranteed Rate Field.
Game 1 of the Tuesday doubleheader will start at 3:40 p.m. The originally scheduled game will begin approximately 30-40 minutes after the conclusion of the opener but not sooner than 7:10.
Astros right-hander Zack Greinke (11-4, 3.08) was scheduled to oppose Sox rookie righty Dylan Cease (2-4, 6.00). Greinke and Cease will pitch Game 1. Astros’ right-hander Gerrit Cole and Sox righty Ivan Nova are scheduled for the second game.
Fans with game tickets, parking coupons and Huntington Bank Stadium Club passes to tomorrow night’s originally scheduled game can attend both games with their ticket and parking pass. Gates will open at 2:40 p.m. and parking lots at 1:40 p.m.
From the White Sox: “Game tickets, parking coupons and Huntington Bank Stadium Club passes for the postponed game cannot be used for tomorrow’s doubleheader unless they are exchanged at the box office prior to entry. Or fans can apply the value of those tickets, parking coupons and stadium club passes to any future regular season White Sox home game. All exchanges must be done at the Guaranteed Rate Field box office during regular business hours.”
NBC Sports Chicago Plus, WGN Radio 720-AM and WRTO-AM 1200/Univision Radio will broadcast both games of the doubleheader.
Rain began to fall at the ballpark while Jose Abreu, Eloy Jimenez and Welington Castillo were taking batting practice outside at about 4 p.m. The tarp was rolled out to cover the field shortly after.
