Wednesday night’s contest between the Chicago Cubs and host St. Louis Cardinals was postponed due to inclement weather.

The teams will make up the contest Thursday when they play a day-night doubleheader.

Thursday’s first game will start at 1:15 p.m. ET (12:15 p.m. CT) and the originally scheduled contest is slated for 7:45 p.m. ET (6:45 CT).

It wasn’t immediately known how the postponement would affect the pitching matchups.

Left-hander Justin Steele of the Cubs was slated to pitch against Cardinals right-hander Miles Mikolas on Wednesday. The scheduled Thursday starters were right-hander Marcus Stroman (3-5, 3.99 ERA) for the Cubs and left-hander Jose Quintana (3-5, 3.50) for the Cardinals.
