The makeup date is June 28, when the Giants return to Chicago for a Tuesday-Thursday series.

Saturday, Ryan Vogelsong pitched six scoreless innings in a rain-shortened game and Buster Posey hit an RBI single to lead San Francisco to a 3-0 win over Chicago.

Sunday's game would have featured Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum (3-3) against Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano (4-1).

The Cubs decided to make the announcement even before gates opened.
