Snowing in Chicago, Cubs Postpone Home Opener


The Cubs enter Monday's home opener having won three of their past four games after Sunday's 3-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Now it appears that Rizzo may not be available for the Cubs home opener at Wrigley Field set for Monday.

Brandon Morrow picked up his first two saves over the weekend since he signed with Chicago in the offseason.

Snow blanketed the playing field early in the morning, and odd as it seemed, the sprinklers were turned on to keep the grass warm. The complete-game mastery was Pittsburgh's first since Ivan Nova - who will pitch Monday against the Cubs - shut out the Marlins last April.

The victim was a resident of the tower who died after being taken to hospital with critical injuries, fire officials said . Son Eric Trump, executive vice president of the Trump Organization, offered similar sentiments to his father, and Don Jr.

Player safety is "always a consideration", Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts said.

Their command appeared to be good. "But I'm really proud of our guys". If you've never seen snow before, man, you're going to get out there and do something like that. "So postponing a couple of these games, it's fine".

"On the way out I had no idea if I was going to Cub Convention or Opening Day", Maddon said. "Three shutouts in a seven-game homestand, that is probably the surprising thing for me".

When the Cubs play their first home game of the 2018 season, they may do so without star first basemen Anthony Rizzo. It has a major league-best 0.94 ERA through 38 1/3 innings.

Zobrist's solo shot off the foul pole in right against Chase Anderson in the fourth gave the Cubs the only run they would need at Miller Park. Bats get cold, the pitching isn't throwing the ball the way we want to throw it. My rookie year (with Seattle), we went into Cleveland and had four games snowed out.

The Cubs' ninth-inning rally began when Victor Caratini reached on an infield single with one out and advanced when Arcia's throw bounced past Thames for an error.

Hence the manager is a little more than anxious to finally get the home schedule going.
