LEADING OFF: Cubs play home opener against Pirates

Pirates day game postponed due to snow at Wrigley

Pirates day game postponed due to snow at Wrigley

Now, Nova will look to extend the Pirates' torrid start in the first of a three-game series at Wrigley Field, where Pittsburgh finished 4-5 last season.

"It's probably one of the worst games to go out there and not have your stuff and kind of give it up", said Davies, the Brewers' leader past year in victories (17), starts (33) and innings (191 1/3).

The Cubs' pitching rotation will remain the same, Maddon said. Tuesday was previously scheduled as an off day.

"We've got a lot of guys with a lot of good stuff", Morrow said.

Brandon Morrow pitched a flawless ninth for his second save. The 25-year old second baseman is only hitting.154 on the season with zero homers, however he has driven in four runs.

This isn't an ideal start for a team that hopes to challenge the Cubs again in the division.

"Just thinking about Wrigley Field, makes me feel way better than going away", said Contreras - and finally he along with his teammates will see the wait come to an end.

Fans of the Milwaukee Brewers should already be accustomed to nail-biting finishes after last season, but the team has shown no signs of making things any easier in 2018.

"On the way out I had no idea if I was going to Cub Convention or Opening Day", Maddon said. "But we're equipped that way roster-wise obviously have another really capable player get some playing time".

They've added three new right-handed relievers over the weekend, with Adrian Houser called up from Class AA Biloxi to replace Knebel.

Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood throws against the Cincinnati Reds during the first inning at Great American Ball Park. It was the franchise's longest road trip to open the season since a 12-game jaunt in 1899. The right-hander is 0-6 with a 5.89 career ERA against the Cardinals.

Brewers: RHP Chase Anderson (0-0) will make his third start, trying to rebound from a no-decision Tuesday when he allowed four runs in four innings against St. Louis.
