Giants-Cubs Game Postponed by Rain
CHICAGO (AP) -- Sunday's series finale between the Cubs and Giants has been postponed by rain.

Cubs officials announced the postponement three hours before the game was scheduled to start. It was raining lightly in Chicago, and forecasts called for little improvement.

Sunday's game would have featured Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum (3-3) against Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano (4-1).

No makeup date was announced. The teams are scheduled to meet again in Chicago for a three-game series starting June 28.

The Cubs decided to make the announcement even before gates opened.

Heavy rains forced an early end to Saturday's game. The Giants won 3-0 in a game called in the top of the seventh.
