#Cubs vs Padres ppd – DH on Wed
Monday night’s game between the Cubs and Padres was postponed because of inclement weather, and the two teams will play a split doubleheader on Wednesday. The first game will begin at 12:05 p.m. CT, and be followed by the regularly scheduled game at 7:05 p.m. CT.
Jon Lester (3-1, 1.58 ERA) will start Tuesday for the Cubs against the Padres’ Cesar Vargas. On Wednesday, Kyle Hendricks (2-2, 3.10 ERA) will start the first game and be followed by John Lackey (4-1, 4.02 ERA) in the night game.
This was the first game postponed by the weather for the Padres this season. The Cubs have already had two games in late April rescheduled because of the weather, and will play a make-up game July 7 against the Braves and a make-up split doubleheader Aug. 16 against the Brewers.
Separate tickets are required for each game Wednesday. The gates will re-open approximately 90 minutes after the conclusion of the first game. Tickets to Monday’s game at Wrigley Field will be honored for the 12:05 p.m. CT game on Wednesday. No ticket exchange is necessary.
