Monday’s game PPD
Monday’s series opener between the Reds and Cubs was postponed because persistent showers at Great American Ball Park.
No makeup date was immediately announced, but it’s not expected to be played this week.
Alfredo Simon was scheduled to pitch for the Reds against the Cubs’ Jeff Samardzija. Both clubs are scheduling their Monday starters to pitch on Tuesday.
“As it stands right now, we’ll stay in order,” Reds manager Bryan Price. “I don’t see where it would change. We’re playing 17 straight so it gives us chance for all of these guys to get an extra day of rest.”
The decision to call the game came following a 57-minute delay once the forecast appeared to be grim for the remainder of the evening.
