CHICAGO — First Mother Nature did not cooperate Monday at Wrigley Field and then neither did the electricity.

What was supposed to have been the first game of a three-game series between the Chicago Cubs and visiting Los Angeles Dodgers has become a day-night doubleheader scheduled for Tuesday when the forecast calls for even more rain.

After nearly a three-hour delay Monday Authentic Kyzir White Jersey (http://www.chargerscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-kyzir-white-jersey) , Monday’s series opener was postponed due to a combination of stormy weather and a limited power outage inside Wrigley Field that kept lights in right field from being fully operational.

“We are going to be actively working on this issue tonight,” Cubs vice president of communications Julian Green told reporters, according to the Chicago Tribune. “We plan to have the ballpark fully operational by tomorrow.”

Whether the rains hold off long enough to get both games in, however, remains in question.

“Being able to at least get one of those games in tomorrow, even with the forecast equally as dicey, is important,” Green said.

Before the final determination was made to postpone Monday’s game, it appeared the bank of lights in right field might cooperate only to fail once again.

“They thought they had a chance,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters, according to the Los Angeles Times. “But once they went out again Youth Tyquan Lewis Jersey (http://www.thecoltsfootballauthentic.com/tyquan-lewis-jersey-authentic) , they made the final decision.”

Monday’s game will be rescheduled for 12 p.m. CT before Tuesday’s regularly scheduled game will be played at 7:05 p.m.

Monday’s scheduled Dodgers starter, Kenta Maeda will pitch in the first of the doubleheader on Tuesday and is coming off a no-decision, which came in his first start since coming off a hip injury.

Maeda (4-4, 3.61 ERA) had been pitching extremely well before the hip injury on May 29. Maeda had thrown 14 2/3 scoreless innings with 20 strikeouts in his two previous starts before the injury. Maeda will make his first career start against the Cubs.

Rich Hill is scheduled to start for the Dodgers in Tuesday’s nightcap.

Hill will return from the disabled list after missing nearly a month due to recurring blisters. He last pitched May 19 in Washington before exiting with a blister after throwing two pitches.

In six starts this season, Hill is 1-2 with a 6.20 ERA. He is 1-0 with an 0.82 ERA in a pair of postseason starts against the Cubs but last faced them in the regular season as a reliever for the Boston Red Sox on May 21, 2011.

After having his start pushed back a day, Tyler Chatwood (3-5. 4.12) will attempt to get on track Tuesday afternoon against the Dodgers. Chatwood is seeking his first win since May 11 and allowed four runs over five innings in his last outing against the Milwaukee Brewers. Chatwood has struggled with walks all season and has walked at least four in four of his past five outings.

Chatwood is 5-9 with a 4.07 ERA in 15 career starts against the Dodgers.

Mike Montgomery is scheduled to pitch the nightcap for the Cubs.

Montgomery is making his fifth start of the season and is 2-1 with a 1.14 ERA as a starting pitcher. He last pitched Wednesday in Milwaukee when he allowed one run on two hits in six innings of a 1-0 loss.

He is 0-0 with a 4.15 ERA in three outings against the Dodgers.

The Dodgers and Cubs are both coming off successful weekends when they took two of three games from the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals, respectively. As the Dodgers look to get back on track after having their five-game winning streak snapped on Sunday, they received encouraging news that ace Clayton Kershaw could return to the rotation as early as this weekend, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

Kershaw threw a simulated game on Monday and could make his return either against the New York Mets or in a minor-league rehab start. Roberts told reporters that Kershaw would prefer to pitch at the big-league level.

“Clayton is going to be more on the aggressive side, which we all know and appreciated Youth Keke Coutee Jersey (http://www.thetexansfootballauthentic.com/keke-coutee-jersey-authentic) ,” Roberts said. “But we’re going to have a conversation with the training staff, the front office and really try to figure out what makes the most sense for him and for us.”

The Cubs could get Javier Baez back for Tuesday. Baez left Sunday’s 5-0 loss at St. Louis with a left elbow contusion after being hit by a pitch Baez was not in the lineup before Monday’s game was postponed and did not need x-rays.

>Terrell Owens has decided to celebrate his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame at Chattanooga, where he played college football.The former NFL All-Pro receiver, who has said he was not attending the induction ceremony in Canton, Ohio, released a statement on Tuesday saying he would give his acceptance speech at his alma mater.“I have decided to give my Hall of Fame speech at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in McKenzie Arena on Saturday, August 4,” Owens posted on . “The event, which is free and open to the public, starts at 3:17 p.m.”Owens added that he is “proud to be a Moc, and I’m honored to be able to share this experience with my family Billy Price Color Rush Jersey (http://www.cincinnatibengalsshop.com/cheap-billy-price-jersey) , friends, teammates and fans at the place that provided me an opportunity beyond high school and where I truly began to find myself as an athlete.”The 44-year-old Owens said he is looking forward to the event, and “Getcha popcorn ready.”Owens was a three-sport athlete at Chattanooga, where he played football from 1992-95. He also played basketball and ran track for the Mocs. Owens said he “realized just how much I want to celebrate what will inevitably be the best weekend of my life at a place that means so much to me.”He was voted into the hall in February after being denied in his first two years of eligibility. His announcement last month that he was skipping the Aug. 4 induction ceremony at the Pro Football Hall of Fame is unprecedented by an enshrinee.In a statement released last month by his publicist, Owens said: “While I am incredibly appreciative of this opportunity, I have made the decision to publicly decline my invitation to attend the induction ceremony in Canton.“After visiting Canton earlier this year, I came to the realization that I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere,” Owens added. “At a later date, I will announce where and when I will celebrate my induction.”Chattanooga athletic director Mark Wharton said Tuesday that Owens first spoke with school officials “several months ago” about the possibility of having some type of event in Chattanooga. At the time, Owens hadn’t yet indicated he was skipping the Canton induction ceremony.Wharton said Owens spoke with them again “two to three weeks ago” about the possibility of giving his induction speech on campus and that officials were “ecstatic” about the idea.“Obviously we supported him going to Canton Bradley Chubb Color Rush Jersey (http://www.authenticsdenverbroncos.com/cheap-bradley-chubb-jersey) ,” Wharton said. “At the time, there hadn’t been any living Hall of Fame members who did not go to Canton, so our assumption was that he was (going to Canton). But in multiple conversations with him and his team, he felt most comfortable doing it in a place that molded him into the player and person he is today.”Wharton said the specifics of the Aug. 4 ceremony haven’t been finalized, but he expects a weekend full of events around town honoring Owens.Owens entered the league as a third-round pick by San Francisco in 1996 and developed into a star known for some memorable playoff appearances, including his winning 25-yard TD catch to beat Green Bay in 1999; his 177 yards in a comeback win against the Giants in 2003; and his nine catches for 122 yards in the 2004 Super Bowl against New England just seven weeks after breaking his leg.He ranks second to Jerry Rice with 15,934 yards receiving and is third on the all-time touchdowns receiving list with 153.Owens heavily criticized the voting process when he failed to be elected in 2016 and 2017. Among the reasons he fell short were his being considered a divisive teammate and negative presence in the locker room.AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner contributed to this report..
