Cubs-Braves game in a weather delay
|2017-07-18 19:40:44.0- -||
The Chicago Cubs are going for their fifth straight win on Tuesday night as they play the Atlanta Braves at Sun-Trust Park. However, the two teams will have to wait just a little longer as the game just entered into a rain delay.
A huge rain shower just went through Atlanta as the tarp was put on the field. The delay should not last long as the sun is already out on half the field.
Cubs veteran John Lackey will take the field for the defending World Series champions.
We will update you when the start time is announced for the game to begin.
6:47 PM CDT -- The tarp is coming off the field.
It was announced that 7:15 PM CDT is the estimated first pitch for tonight's game.
6:57 PM CDT -- The tarp is coming back on the field and the game will be delayed further.
7:38 PM CDT -- The tarp is coming back on the field for a third time.
8:38 PM CDT -- Annnounced 10:05 PM first pitch.
Only time it rains in Atlanta is when they take off the tarp. I suggest we start with the tarp ON the field. Would be fun.— Len Kasper (@LenKasper) July 19, 2017
