Chicago Cubs-Washington Nationals postponed, makeup will be Thursday


The Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals were postponed due to rain on Sunday afternoon in Washington, and both teams will be making the trip back to Nationals Park to make up the contest at 4:05 p.m. ET on Thursday.

The teams waited through some three hours of delays on Sunday while hoping to get the game in. The Nationals' Twitter account said the lengthy wait was because the Cubs were not scheduled to make another trip into Washington this season and that the decision on how long to wait was in the hands of Major League Baseball.

When that decision came, it forced the teams to find a mutual off day, which is Thursday.

The Nationals will pause during an eight-game road trip, which begins Monday with three games in Philadelphia and resumes Friday in Atlanta.

The Cubs, on the other hand, will be interrupting a six-game homestand to make up the game. They will go home for a three-game National League Central showdown with the Milwaukee Brewers starting Monday.

After Thursday's game, the Cubs will return home for three against the Cincinnati Reds.

Sunday's Cubs rainout, along with the Brewers' 6-3 win over the San Francisco Giants, leaves Milwaukee two games behind Chicago in the Central.

Left-hander Mike Montgomery, who would have been Sunday's starter for the Cubs, will be skipped in the rotation, and Jon Lester will pitch Monday against the Brewers' Wade Miley as previously announced.
