Cardinals-Cubs Game Called Off in Third because of Rain

Tonight's game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs has been postponed due to weather.

The decision follows a one-hour, 48-minute rain delay in the bottom of the third inning. A makeup date was not immediately announced.

The game was scoreless. Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano, who agreed to a five-year, $91 million contract Friday, retired all nine batters he faced.

Chicago's Matt Murton beat out an infield single for the game's only hit to start the bottom of the third. Moments later it began to pour.

It had rained most of the day in the Chicago area but tapered off and then stopped in time for the game's first pitch to go off as scheduled.
