As rain continues to drench the Chicagoland area, the Cubs-Rangers game was postponed Wednesday night.

No make-up date has been announced.

The forecast is not any better -- and may, in fact, be worse -- for Thursday, so the series finale is in doubt, too.

MLB adopted a new schedule format this season, as the Astros moving to the American League put the count at 15 teams in each league. That ensures interleague play just about every day, and is an issue for early-season games when weather is more likely to be a factor. This is the only trip the Rangers make to Wrigley Field this season. Texas does not return to Chicago to play the White Sox until Aug. 23, but the Cubs are in the midst of a West Coast trip then.
