Day-Night Doubleheader Scheduled For Wednesday

The cold, rainy conditions in Chicago have postponed the Cubs vs. Padres game for Tuesday, April 19th. The game is currently scheduled to be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader on Wednesday, April 20th.

The first game will start at 1:20 P.M., CDT, while the second game will start at 6:05 P.M., CDT. The evening game slot is the makeup game for 4/19.

In a statement about the decision to postpone the game, the club wrote:

The Padres are not scheduled to return to Wrigley Field during the
2011 season and, without a favorable mutual off day later in the
season, every effort will be made to complete a full series of games
this week.

Tickets for tonight's postponed game will be good for admission to
tomorrow’s second game, the 6:05 p.m. contest, between the Cubs and
Padres.  The Tyler Colvin bobblehead promotion, scheduled for tonight,
will also take place for tomorrow evening’s game.


James Russell Battles Rain And Padres In Second Start

After a thrilling 1-0 victory in extra innings, the Cubs will once again take on the San Diego Padres at Wrigley Field. If the weather cooperates. Temperatures in the Chicago area are currently in the high-30s and the area has been blanketed by clouds and intermittent rain showers. More rain, and thunderstorms, are expected during the evening, throwing the status of the game into question.

Should the game take place, the Cubs will send James Russell to the mound for his second ever major league start. In his first start, at Houston, Russell lasted just 1.2 innings while managing to give up five runs (four earned) on seven hits. He'll look to improve on that on Tuesday night, with the Cubs bullpen needing him to eat innings at the very least.

The Padres will turn to Dustin Moseley on Tuesday evening. Moseley, in his first year with San Diego, is currently 0-3 despite having only a 1.83 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. Just as James Russell has no career experience against the Padres, Moseley has no career experience against the Cubs.

Tonight's first pitch, weather permitting, will be at 7:05 P.M., CDT. The game will be televised on CSN+ and 4 San Diego.
