At first, the Cubs postponed their game by one hour to 2:20 p.m. 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. It was just a snow-go.

After a rocky start, Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon thinks Ian Happ finally can relax a little bit.

The Brewers hope to get back on the winning track tonight when they travel to St. Louis for a series against the Cardinals.

Another key decision taken after talks between the visiting Oli and Modi was on the development of inland waterways. He said adding that the two countries have agreed to expedite implementation of all connectivity projects.

"It's rough out there", reliever Steve Cishek said. "We'll get a better game in tomorrow". "But I'm really proud of our guys".

Chicago star Kris Bryant had three hits, including his second homer of the season, and walked twice one day after he committed a costly error in the ninth inning of Milwaukee's 5-4 win. The good news is that he has already registered 11 strikeouts and he'll face a Cubs lineup that is full of strikeout potential.

Brandon Morrow picked up his first two saves over the weekend since he signed with Chicago in the offseason. "It's just we have to get the field clear - obviously you don't want anyone to slip and fall". If you've never seen snow before, man, you're going to get out there and do something like that. Now we're in the Miller Park nosebleeds for this 2-on-1 beatdown. He took the loss in Milwaukee's home opener, giving up seven runs (six earned) on eight hits while striking out six without a walk over 5 2/3 innings of work.

Pirates right-hander Ivan Nova is expected to move back one day to start the series opener, and Maddon said Tyler Chatwood would go for the Cubs. Maddon said Rizzo might miss the Cubs' home opener on Monday against Pittsburgh, but he wasn't "overly concerned" after talking to the first baseman and the trainer.
