Brewers Upset At Cubs For Postponing Saturday’s Game

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Chicago, IL)  —  Brewers’ G-M David Stearns says he’s not happy that the Chicago Cubs postponed Saturday’s game with the Crew at Wrigley Field. The Cubs called it off almost two hours before the scheduled first pitch — and soon after that, it stopped raining for the rest of the day. On Friday, the Cubs used their bullpen for six innings in much worse weather that stopped play for two hours before the Brewers won — and Milwaukee called up pitcher Tyler Cravy from Triple “A” to use Saturday and sent him down after the game was called. Cubs’ manager Joe Maddon claimed he was expecting the same weather as Friday, but Brewers’ skipper Craig Counsell quipped it was the first time they had “players treated for sunburn after a rainout.” Home teams can postpone games before they begin — and after that, the umpires make the call.
