Final game of Cubs at Reds postponed because of rain

CINCINNATI (AP) — The finale of a four-game series between the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds was postponed Thursday because of rain.

No makeup date was set in this virus-shortened season. The Cubs are scheduled to return to Cincinnati for a three-game series Aug. 28-30.

Rain moved in several hours before the scheduled start and was expected to last well into the evening.

The rainout slowed Chicago’s fast start to the season, with four wins in the first six games. Chicago took two of three in Cincinnati, the first time it had opened with back-to-back series wins since 2017.

The Reds dropped four of their first six games but were encouraged to get Mike Moustakas and Nick Senzel back after missing three games because of a COVID-19 scare. They didn’t feel well Sunday and were held out until numerous tests cleared them.

Both returned and homered during a 12-7 win Wednesday night that snapped a four-game losing streak.

CUBS MOVE

Right-hander Colin Rea was recalled from Chicago’s alternate training site and right-hander Dillon Maples was optioned. Rea, 30, was last in the majors with the Marlins in 2016. Maples struggled in two relief appearances.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Cubs: Kris Bryant was in the scheduled starting lineup for the second straight game after missing one with a sore left elbow.

Reds: Right-handed reliever Matt Bowman went on the 10-day injured list with a sprained right elbow. Left-handed starter Wade Miley is expected to go in the injured list with a strained groin. Anthony DeSclafani would take his place in the rotation.

UP NEXT

Cubs: Chicago opens a series against the Pirates at Wrigley Field.

Reds: Cincinnati opens a series in Detroit. The Tigers took two of three at Great American Ball Park to open the season.
