Rain delay in eighth inning of Cubs-Pirates game


by - Senior Writer -

PITTSBURGH — With heavy rain falling at PNC Park, Tuesday's contest between the Chicago Cubs and the Pittsburgh Pirates was delayed midway through the eighth inning. The Cubs led 6-5 at the time of the delay.

The rain picked up during the top half of the eighth, and the grounds crew brought out the tarp to cover the infield between innings. Hopefully, the squall will blow through, allowing the game to be completed.

Update: Play is expected to resume at approximately 10:10 p.m. CDT.
