CHICAGO (AP) — The series opener between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs has been postponed by rain and a limited power outage at Wrigley Field.
It was sunny and hot in Chicago for most of Monday, but clouds began to roll into the area about two hours before the scheduled first pitch. An initial downpour stopped at one point and the grounds crew pulled the tarp off the field, only to put it back on after a short stretch.
There was also trouble with three banks of lights on the first-base side at the iconic ballpark that went on and off a couple times, in addition to some lights in the stands on the third-base side that were out when the game was called after a nearly 3-hour delay.
The game will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader on Tuesday.
