Round One of Cubs-Sox Postponed

The game between the Cubs and White Sox scheduled for Tuesday night was postponed due to rain … less than twenty minutes into the rain delay.

The Cubs have not announced a makeup date. ESPN 1000 reported earlier on Tuesday afternoon that the game would likely be played on one of two mutual off days for the Cubs and Sox in September.

Updated – 7:38pm C.T.Ryan Dempster will start on Wednesday and Carlos Zambrano has been moved to Thursday afternoon’s series finale.

Look for Carlos Zambrano to be moved until Wednesday with Ryan Dempster moving to Thursday. Rich Harden was slated to face Cliff Lee on Friday but it would not be a surprise to see Lou Piniella move Harden to Sunday to give him an extra couple of days. Ted Lilly is penciled in as of this writing to start Saturday’s game against Carl Pavano.

Updated – 8:07pm C.T. – The Sun-Times is reporting a possible makeup date of September 3.
