The wild inning that saved Cubs fans a whole lot of panicking as told in Tweets

The Pittsburgh Pirates started the season as hot as anyone in the National League and so far are flawless on the road.

The Cubs' game against the Pittsburgh Pirates was postponed a day because of snow that covered much of Wrigley Field, creating a scene more reminiscent of January than April.

Yelich, acquired from Miami, was hitting.385 with one homer and five RBIs.

The game was rescheduled for Tuesday afternoon, which was previously an off day for the first series between the NL Central rivals. "It's just we have to get the field clear - obviously you don't want anyone to slip and fall".

Brandon Morrow got three outs for his first save since signing with the Cubs in the offseason.

New Cubs closer Brandon Morrow, who pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers a year ago and the San Diego Padres before that, appeared to enjoy the snow, but he seemed as glad as anyone the Cubs will try it in better weather the rest of the week. The Chicago Cubs got things started on Friday when the team took on the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park.

"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.

The Brewers are well prepared to withstand a short-term injury to one of their core players.

Jesus Aguilar could also get more time at first base, too, with starter Eric Thames able to play the outfield.

"On the way out I had no idea if I was going to Cub Convention or Opening Day", Maddon said.

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

Brewers: Jhoulys Chacin (0-1) takes the hill when the team opens a six-game road trip at St. Louis. Chatwood has shut down the Pirates in his two career starts, conceding only two runs in 12 innings. The 6-foot-5 right-hander held the Tigers to only two runs in five innings in his season debut.
