After playing through horrible weather in Chicago on Saturday night, Sunday's game between the Cubs and Atlanta Braves was postponed because of more inclement weather forecast throughout the day. 

The game will be replayed on Monday, May 14 at 1:20 p.m. CT at Wrigley Field. Fans who had tickets to a Sunday afternoon game will need to play hooky to attend the weekday game.

Fans won't need to exchange their April 15 tickets for new ones, the original tickets will be honored and usable for the May 14 date.

Interestingly enough, the Cubs travel to Atlanta for a three game series against the Braves beginning on May 15. The postponed game will turn a three-game road series into a four-game series covering both cities.

It will also immediately follow the Cubs crosstown rivalry series with the Chicago White Sox at Wrigley, and eliminate a rest day before the Atlanta series.

The Cubs and Braves played through conditions manager Joe Maddon called "horrific" and the Cubs mounted an incredible comeback thanks to a nine-run performance in the 8th inning. Maddon said postponing Sunday's game was the "right thing to do." While the Cubs benefitted from Saturday's conditions, there is no telling whether the Cubs would've benefited again on Sunday.
