The Cubs’ game against the Texas Rangers Wednesday night has been postponed by rain, and no makeup date has been scheduled yet.

Wednesday’s scheduled starter for the Cubs, right-hander Carlos Villanueva, has been backed up to Thursday, with the rest of the rotation also staying in order heading into the weekend’s three-game series at Milwaukee: Jeff Samardzija, Edwin Jackson and Scott Feldman.

The Cubs lost 4-2 to the Rangers in the series opener Tuesday and are scheduled to finish the series with a 1:20 p.m. game Thursday, with more rain in the forecast.
