BC-BBN-Pirates-Cubs-Snow Delay, 85 Cubs delay home opener vs. Pirates because of snowAP Photo ILKS102Eds: APNewsNow.

A light dusting of snow covered Wrigley Field and most of the exposed level-100 seating area. There wasn't quite as much snow on the South Side, and the series against Tampa Bay is the only scheduled trip to Chicago for the Rays, so rescheduling their game would have been more hard.

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs tried to play their home opener on Monday. My rookie year (with Seattle), we went into Cleveland and had four games snowed out.

Milwaukee also made 7 errors in the series, allowing the Cubs to take advantage.

Chicago will be bringing out RHP Tyler Chatwood on Monday.

The Cubs postponement becomes the 11th one so far for the Major League Baseball 2018 season due to winter weather, according to SportsNet.

The Cubs tried pushing back first pitch by an hour, and workers used hand-held blowers to melt the snow on the tarp.

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

"It's rough out there", reliever Steve Cishek said. The team has Tuesday off, which would give Rizzo an additional day to rest before potentially returning Wednesday.

After opening the home portion of the schedule with a loss to the Cardinals, Milwaukee rallied back the next night and walked off after Christian Yelich and Braun hit back-to-back home runs in the ninth for a 5-4 victory. What is the best play on the board for bettors if these National League Central rivals do actually play this afternoon?

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

"I think all of us are ready to get to Miami", he said. Guys are getting quick outs and strikeouts when they need to.
