They were 48-33 last season and that was the worst of it, especially having gone 57-24 the year before and 49-32 in 2015.

"It's feels like it's been a long time since Spring Training, we've been on the road for a while", said the utility player, who will take part in his third home opener in Chicago.

Fans of the Milwaukee Brewers should already be accustomed to nail-biting finishes after last season, but the team has shown no signs of making things any easier in 2018. The right-hander is 0-6 with a 5.89 career ERA against the Cardinals.

Quintana (1-1) struck out six and walked two while lowering his ERA in five starts against Milwaukee from 0.90 to 0.77.

Chicago's Kris Bryant tied the game 1-1 with a solo home run in the 6th.

The Cubs' ninth-inning rally began when Victor Caratini reached on an infield single with one out and advanced when Arcia's throw bounced past Thames for an error. "It's April still", said Anderson, who allowed four hits and two runs over six innings.

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.

Tyler Chatwood will make his second start of the season, aiming for his first win as a member of the Cubs.

Milwaukee wasted a nice start for Zach Davies, who struck out eight while pitching six innings of one-run ball. It took three of four against Cincinnati in its previous series.

Zobrist's solo shot off the foul pole in right against Chase Anderson in the fourth gave the Cubs the only run they would need at Miller Park. The Cubs are now averaging 4.50 runs per game, ranking them 15th in the Majors.

I am taking the Cubs in this one. Chicago starter Yu Darvish allowed a run over six frames on two hits and nine strikeouts for a no decision.

"It's the Cubs' home opener, and here's what Wrigley Field looked like Monday morning", the caption next to the clip read.
