Reds ace Johnny Cueto, who was slated to start Saturday, will start Game 1 vs. Chicago's Hector Noesi. Friday's original starter for the Reds, Jason Marquis, is now scheduled for Game 2 against Carlos Rodon, who will be making his first Major League start.
The Reds last played a traditional doubleheader on July 23, 2013, vs. the Giants at AT&T Park. One of the games was a makeup for a rainout that happened earlier in the month in Cincinnati.
Last season, the Reds played three day-night doubleheaders.
There have been nine hours, eight minutes of rain delays for the Reds this season, covering five games. This is the second rainout for Cincinnati in 2015.
