• For some teams, a three-hour, 18-minute rain delay in Wrigley Field's quaint visitor's clubhouse can be claustrophobic. But on Friday, Astros manager Bo Porter said the team was more than fine during the delay.
"This is a great clubhouse," Porter said. "It brings the team together. It puts everyone at close proximity. You have to love it."
• Porter decided not to start recently-called-up left-handed outfielder Marc Krauss with Cubs left-hander Travis Wood starting on the mound on Saturday, so the rookie will have to wait to make his Major League debut.
"I'm glad we hit outside today," Porter said. "It gave him a chance to take some balls off the bat here at Wrigley Field."
