|Cubs Rained Out in Pittsburgh
|PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Cubs-Pirates game was postponed due to unplayable field conditions along the warning track after a rain delay of 3 hours, 12 minutes Wednesday night.
The game will be made up Monday in Pittsburgh.
Fans scattered to lower levels in the ballpark after a lightning bolt rattled the upper deck stands about a half-hour into the rain delay. Lightning crashes periodically shook PNC Park, where the Pirates had not lost a game to weather this season.
The teams could not play on a scheduled off day Thursday because the Pirates have played the maximum 20 games in 20 days.
The Pirates lead the season series 7-1, winning all five games played in Pittsburgh.
