Snow covers Wrigley Field, delays Cubs home opener

"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. "That's what happens after a hit like that". With the team off Tuesday, that would give him more time to get healthy. He conceded 10 runs in 16.2 innings against the Cubs last season, and he owns a 2-1 record with a 4.09 ERA in 22 career innings against Chicago.

On his way to the ballpark, manager Joe Maddon had a feeling the game wasn't going to be played. "So take the extra time, get it right, and hopefully be good to go soon", he said. Victor Caratini is again handling first base for the Cubs, who will also be without Javy Baez and Ian Happ.

New Cubs closer Brandon Morrow, who pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers previous year 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 Brewers will counter the Cubs' Quintana with Chase Anderson, who is coming off an outstanding 2017 campaign. He was hurt by errors on shortstop Orlando Arcia and third baseman Travis Shaw.

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

The Brewers attack consisted of four hits and a walk and 13 strikeouts with Eric Thames cracking a solo homer while Lorenzo Cain smacked a sacrifice fly that scored Jett Bandy.

He said he might be a little lucky in Milwaukee. "You enjoy it. It was a great ballgame, an entertaining game".

DIAMONDBACKS 4, CARDINALS 1 - David Peralta hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer off Dominic Leone in the eighth, A.J. Pollock went deep later in the inning and Arizona Diamondbacks beat the St. Louis Cardinals in a game marred by a benches-clearing incident in the second inning.

Yu Darvish rebounded from a rough debut with a sharp effort on Saturday, limiting the Brewers to one run over six innings while striking out nine in a no-decision (the Cubs eventually won the game).
