Well … we knew this was a definite possibility given the hail storm earlier, but game one between the Chicago Cubs and Colorado Rockies series has been officially postponed … until tomorrow. That’s right, it’s double header time.
Here’s the news from the Cubs, themselves:
Tonight's game has been postponed.

With the Cubs having gone 18 innings against the Yankees last night, and with the bullpen already worn down, you can bet they don’t hate a rain out … but a double header isn’t much better. At least they’ll get an extra player (which will almost certainly be a pitcher) for the day.
Game one is now scheduled for 1:10 CT and Game two is still at 7:40 PM CT. Here’s more information from the Rockies:
