CINCINNATI — First it poured, then it rained for the Cubs Thursday at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.

The Cubs trailed 11-5 through five innings when their four-game series finale against the Reds was delayed by rain.

Cubs starter Justin Steele struggled through his worst start of the season, allowing seven runs in just two-plus innings — knocked out before recording an out during the Reds' eight-run third inning.

Nico Hoerner, Willson Contreras and Ian Happ have homered for the Cubs.

After Cincinnati, the Cubs take Friday off before opening a two-game series against the White Sox on the South Side Saturday.
