Pirates Vs. Cubs: First Pitch Delayed Due To Rain

The Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates were scheduled to play the final game of their four-game series Monday, but the game has yet to get underway due to rain. First pitch was scheduled for 8:05 p.m. ET, but the tarp is on the field as the rain continues to fall.

While no start time has been given, the Cubs do expect to get the game in, according to the Chicago Tribune. This is the final scheduled meeting between the two teams this season, making it difficult to schedule a makeup game.

If the game does begin, Travis Wood will start for the Cubs with Kevin Correia slated to pitch for Pittsburgh.
