Cubs' clash with Giants delayed by rain

CHICAGO -- The start of Tuesday's game between the Cubs and Giants was delayed because of rain. It began an hour and five minutes after the originally scheduled start time of 6:05 p.m. CT.

Cubs lefty Jon Lester faced off against Giants right-hander Johnny Cueto. The two last faced off in Game 1 of the National League Division Series in October. They would've met for a potential Game 5, but the Cubs won the series with a ninth-inning rally in Game 4.

This is the Giants' only trip to Wrigley Field this year.
