Quintana shuts down Brewers, Cubs head home after win

Preview: Brewers vs. Cubs

Chicago Cubs Fans Punch & Push Two Brewers Fans In Stands During Game (VIDEO)

Two smaller Brewers fans didn't appreciate something the Cubs fan did behind him, so they stood up and confronted them. It was the franchise's longest road trip to open the season since a 12-game jaunt in 1899.

But if the Pirates are going to get off on the right foot in Chicago this season, they will need more solid pitching efforts like the one they got from their ace on Sunday.

Tyler Chatwood will make his second start of the season, aiming for his first win as a member of the Cubs. "(Taillon) gave them a nice blueprint to follow moving forward".

There is heavy snow falling in Chicago, so the game will be made up Tuesday at 2:20 ET.

The Cubs are being patient with Rizzo, so it's entirely possible that he'll be withheld from the lineup for the fourth consecutive game.

Brewers: LF Christian Yelich (oblique tightness) is progressing but is doubtful to return Sunday, manager Craig Counsell said.

"You want to be smart", Rizzo told reporters, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Bale is one of four changes from that victory with Mateo Kovacic , Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio also coming into the side. Madrid have now failed to beat Atletico in their last five league games at the Bernabeu (two draws, three defeats).

The Milwaukee Brewers had a chance to bounce back in a big way after losing two of three games against the St. Louis Cardinals earlier in the week.

Expected cold temperatures Monday in Chicago could reek havoc on Rizzo's back stiffness, but temperatures are expected to rise throughout the week.

"We've been going after this for a while a bit on the road", said Maddon, whose team went from Arizona Spring Training to Lee County, Florida to face the Red Sox in two exhibition games before a week-and-a-half of regular season play away from Chicago.

"Anytime you're dealing with a back, obviously you never know", Maddon said, according to the Sun-Times.

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

Javier Baez is starting to come around at the plate, driving in three runs with four walks in his last three games. He has been okay thus far in 2018, however, allowing three home runs in 10 innings of work. The team is now hoping to start at 2:20 p.m.
