According to a report in the Chicago Tribune, Sunday night’s Cubs-Cardinals game has been postponed due to rain.
The game will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader on Sunday, July 12. ESPN was scheduled to broadcast the Sunday night game between the Cubs and Cardinals on July 12 and the game should remain on their schedule. The All-Star Break begins the next day, which will be good timing for a long day of baseball.
The Cubs face the Cardinals for three games next weekend in St. Louis, the first of three trips to St. Louis this season. The Redbirds have only one series left in Chicago this season…July 10-12.
With Ted Lilly scheduled to pitch on Sunday night, he has been moved to the second game of the Reds’ series on Wednesday night. Lou Piniella will use Rich Harden, as planned on Tuesday, Lilly on Wednesday and Carlos Zambrano on Thursday against Aaron Harang.
Sean Marshall was slated to start on Wednesday and will probably be available out of the pen.
The Cubs begin a stretch of 20 in a row on Tuesday with three against the Reds, trips to St. Louis and Arizona, then back to Wrigley to host the Marlins for a four-game series starting on April 30. The Giants will visit Wrigley for a two-game series starting on May 4…then the long stretch of games end with two in Houston and three in Milwaukee.
