Wednesday's game between the Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs at Great American Ball Park was postponed due to rain and rescheduled as part of a split doubleheader on Friday, Sept. 1.
The Cincinnati area was under a tornado watch with a line of strong storms expected in the afternoon.
Game 1 (the rescheduled game) will begin at 1:10 p.m. ET. Game 2 Game 2 (the original game) will start at 6:40 p.m. ET. Both games of the split doubleheader will be nine-inning regulation games.
Cubs OF Seiya Suzuki (left oblique strain) had four at-bats in a simulated game in Arizona with no issues. He was expected to get more at-bats and play defense in a simulated game on Wednesday. A minor-league rehab stint could come soon.
The Cubs open a six-game homestand on Friday against the Texas Rangers with left-hander Justin Steele (0-0, 0.00) scheduled to make his second start.
