MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Chicago Cubs Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports

There will be no baseball on Monday night for the Dodgers and Cubs, who saw their chances to play a baseball game slip away with bad weather and a power outage. The two teams will attempt to play a split doubleheader on Tuesday, with start times at 10:05 a.m. and 5:05 p.m. PT.

This is the only time the Dodgers will be in Chicago and with an early game Wednesday, they tried hard to get this game in. The rain ended up being the least of the worries when the lights down the right field line just wouldn’t come on.

The starting pitching won’t change for the Dodgers, with Kenta Maeda going in Game 1 and Rich Hill coming off the DL to start Game 2. The Dodgers will have a 26th man for the night game. Manager Dave Roberts said it would most likely be a pitcher called up for that role.
