The Braves and Cubs had split the first two games of the series in Atlanta. The teams had played on Monday in Chicago to make up a game originally scheduled for April 15.
Earlier Thursday, the Braves placed rookie Mike Soroka on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to May 14 due to a right shoulder strain. Left-hander Max Fried was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett and will take Soroka's next start.
The Cubs also made a move, recalling left-handed reliever Randy Rosario from Triple-A Iowa and optioning infielder David Bote to the same club.
