At first, the Cubs postponed their game by one hour to 2:20 p.m.

With the Cubs finally set to return home after an 11-day road trip to begin the 2018 campaign, Rizzo really hopes to be able to take the field for the first game at Wrigley, but not at the risk of a setback.

A comeback win from the Milwaukee Brewers versus the Chicago Cubs appeared to ruffle some feathers between fans at Friday night's game.

Although the home opener brings a special type of excitement to Wrigley Field, reliever Carl Edwards Jr. didn't seem to bummed that the team wouldn't be playing in 30-degree weather.

Closer Brandon Morrow echoed his teammate: "Unfortunately we couldn't get it in, but we've got tomorrow".

The Pirates (7-2) will enter Monday's series opener fresh off a 5-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in which Jameson Taillon allowed just one hit and struck out seven. "When we're going to continue to be in the strike zone like we have been, I mean you see the results".

"Police identified the man killed as Todd Brassner , 67, a resident of the building's 50th floor", CNN reported . Owners of older, residential high-rises are required to add the systems only when major renovations take place.

A short time later, it was announced that the game was canceled and moved to Tuesday.

Ivan Nova (0-1, 6.10 ERA) will make his third start of the season for the Pirates.

The Chicago Cubs have pushed back the scheduled start time for their home opener because of a steady snowfall over Wrigley Field.

The Cubs have had to place first baseman Anthony Rizzo on the 10-day disabled list. In the Sunday finale, the Cubs took a win 3-0.

"Well, he's from SC", manager Joe Maddon said of Edwards.

Chatwood allowed one earned run, six walks and four hits in six innings in his first start against Cincinnat while striking out four. "When you are at the 3, 3½ level. they made the right call".
