Cubs-Braves game in a weather delay

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.

6:47 PM CDT -- The tarp is coming off the field.
