Rain out means Cubs play 2 today

Associated Press

Monday night's game between the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers at Wrigley Field was postponed because of the threat of rain.

The teams will play a split doubleheader today with seven-inning games at 2:20 and 7:40 p.m.

Before the game was postponed, Cubs manager David Ross said center fielder Ian Happ was “better” Monday after his collision with Nico Hoerner on Sunday in Cincinnati.

Ross said team physicians were running Happ through a series of tests.

Ross also did not give information on Hoerner's status, other than being sore.
