Cubs-Cards try to beat weather again

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs' win-loss record accounts for a total of 15 games, many of which have been played in conditions manager Joe Maddon doesn't believe were conducive to baseball.

But an extended winter has forced five postponements, including on Wednesday when a forecast of rain and sleet forced the Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals to extend their series to a scheduled off-day on Thursday.

The postponement, the third at Wrigley Field since Sunday, came a day after the Cardinals won the pushed-back first game of the series on a night when temperatures were in the 30s and the wind chill was in the 20s.
