Cubs-Nationals game postponed

by - Senior Editor -

CHICAGO -- The NLCS playoff series featuring the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals was in a rain delay on Tuesday night.

MLB officials have decided to postpone Game 4 until tomorrow at 3:08 p.m. CT.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said during his pregame interview that he will stick with starter Jake Arrieta for Game 4 regardless if the game is rained out and moved to Wednesday.

In contrast, Dusty Baker said that he was unsure whether Tanner Roark or Stephen Strasburg would start if Game 4 is moved to Wednesday. However, more than likely he would bypass Roark for standout Strasburg.

If necessary, Kyle Hendricks will start for the Cubs in game five against the Nationals.
