CHICAGO (AP) — The series finale between the Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs has been postponed by rain.

There was a steady rain Sunday morning in the Chicago area, and the flags at Wrigley Field rippled in a strong wind.

It also was wet, cold and windy on Saturday, but the teams played through the conditions and the Cubs rallied for a wild 14-10 victory over the Braves. When it was over, both sides were critical of the decision to play.

Sunday's game was rescheduled for 1:20 p.m. on May 14.

The Braves now head home for the opener of a seven-game homestand Monday night against Philadelphia. The Cubs begin a three-game series against St. Louis on Monday night.
