Guardians-Cubs game start time moved due to weather

The Chicago Cubs have announced that their Sunday series finale against the Cleveland Guardians will start later than scheduled due to inclement weather.

According to the team, the game will now start at 4:05 p.m., instead of the original start time of 1:20 p.m. at Wrigley Field.

The weather forecast calls for showers and thunderstorms, as well as patchy fog, for most of the morning and into the early afternoon.

The team says the ballpark gates will open approximately 90 minutes before the first pitch.

The two teams split the first two games of the series, with the Cubs taking a blowout 10-1 win in Game 1 and the Guardians responding with a 6-0 victory in Game 2 on Saturday night.

The Cubs are five games under .500 exactly halfway through their season, with a 38-43 record. They are five games behind the Milwaukee Brewers and Cincinnati Reds in National League Central.

Jameson Taillon is set to face Aaron Civale in the series finale at Wrigley on Sunday.
