The Cubs enter Monday's home opener having won three of their past four games.

Will postponement allow Anthony Rizzo chance to play in Cubs' home opener? It covered the seats on the lower level and the playing surface at Wrigley Field in a scene more reminiscent of December than April. The game was rescheduled for Tuesday. In the Sunday game, Harrison managed a pair of hits and a run while Gregory Polanco hit a two-run homer.

On the field, a combination of slush and snow sat on the tarp, while the sprinklers went off in the uncovered outfield.

"It's definitely important to me", Rizzo said of Monday's game against the Pirates at Wrigley Field. But the accumulation and cold temperatures were just too much. When it became clear the weather was going to cause trouble, the game was pushed back one hour to handle the effects of the inclement weather as ground crews kicked into gear trying to get the field and stadium cleared of snow.

"It's rough out there", reliever Steve Cishek said. So guys like him, as you get a little bit older, save those moments for the game and that's the message with him and all the guys.

The Cubs remain the last team in the majors to not have played at home this season after opening the year with nine straight road games.

Milwaukee falls back to.500 on the season at 5-5.

The Cubs' new-look bullpen has shined so far. Rizzo was to have been re-evaluated Tuesday morning before the Cubs determined it best to place him on the DL. We'll see how it goes. "Been limiting the free passes for the most part, and just really going in with a lot of confidence".

Pittsburgh is off to a surprising 7-2 start. Chatwood has limited the Pirates to only two runs in 12 career innings, and he was sharp in his Cubs debut, holding Cincinnati to one run on four hits in six innings.

Tyler Chatwood (0-1, 1.50 ERA) will make his second start of the season and his Wrigley Field debut for the Cubs. As of Sunday, he was considered doubtful for Monday's series opener against the Pirates.
