Rain postpones Cubs-Cardinals


Wednesday’s game between the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals was postponed by rain, allowing the Cardinals to line up their newly fortified starting rotation.

St. Louis added four pitchers in deals over the last several days, including left-hander Jose Quintana, who will make his Cardinals debut in the second game of Thursday’s day-night doublehead­er. The twinbill was scheduled because of the rainout.

Then, on Saturday, left-hander Jordan Montgomery will make his first start for St. Louis against his former team, the New York Yankees, who dealt him to the Cardinals on Tuesday for outfielder Harrison Bader.


Dinelson Lamet was designated for assignment by the Milwaukee Brewers two days after being acquired in a trade that sent closer Josh Hader to the San Diego Padres.
