The Chicago Cubs will host the Pittsburgh Pirates for their home opener today at Wrigley Field after being "snowed out" on Monday.

ROYALS 1, INDIANS 0 - Lucas Duda homered off Trevor Bauer for the game's only run and Ian Kennedy pitched six shutout innings, leading the Kansas City Royals to a win over the Cleveland Indians in frigid, football-like weather conditions.

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.

Leading the way in hitting for the Cubs coming into this week was Kris Bryant with 12 hits, six RBI, two homers and five runs.

Javier Baez is starting to come around at the plate, driving in three runs with four walks in his last three games. Their pitching staff owns a 4.62 team ERA, positioning them 21st in the Major Leagues. But one could argue they've faced two of the worst teams in baseball to start the season.

The Brewers scratched out a run in the bottom of the 8th inning, but couldn't hold on in the 9th in a 5-2 loss to the Cubs on Saturday. They'll wrap up their series with the Cubs on Sunday afternoon at 1:10pm. Two batters later, Thames tied with game with a homer to straightaway center off starter Kyle Hendricks. In his 6.0 innings during his first start this year, Chatwood put up four hits and one earned.

The Cubs tried to clear a couple inches of snow from the field before Monday's scheduled 1:20 p.m. start, even turning on the sprinklers in an effort to melt the snow.

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

At least the Pirates are hot.
