Garza pushed back to Sunday with illness

CHICAGO -- Right-hander Matt Garza has been pushed back in the Cubs' rotation because of a virus and will not make his scheduled start Saturday, manager Dale Sveum announced following Chicago's 5-4 win over the Dodgers on Friday.

Right-hander Chris Volstad will start in place of Garza, who the club is hopeful will be able to start Sunday's series finale.

"He's a little under the weather," Sveum said. "He's pretty down now."

Volstad will be pitching on regular rest because of Monday's postponement in Cincinnati. The 25-year-old right-hander is 3-3 with a 4.46 ERA in six career starts against the Dodgers.
