CINCINNATI (AP) — The final game of a four-game series between the Chicago Cubs and Reds in Cincinnati has been postponed because of rain. No makeup for Thursday night’s rainout was announced. The Cubs are scheduled to return to Cincinnati for a three-game series Aug. 28-30. Rain moved in several hours before the scheduled start and was expected to last well into the evening. The rainout slowed Chicago’s fast start to the season, with four wins in the first six games. Chicago took two of three in Cincinnati, the first time it had opened with back-to-back series wins since 2017.
