Game 4 of the National League Division Series between the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals at Wrigley Field was postponed by rain, and will be played at 4:08 ET on Wednesday, Major League Baseball announced.

The decision will have significant ramifications regarding the Nationals' chances of forcing a Game 5.

The Cubs lead the best-of-five series 2-1 and are one win from returning to NL Championship Series for a rematch with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Cubs will stick with scheduled starter Jake Arrieta for Game 4 regardless, instead of Game 1 starter Kyle Hendricks, manager Joe Maddon said Tuesday afternoon.
