The first pitch of the 2018 MLB season resulted in a home run

It's another season with high expectation for the Chicago Cubs while the Miami Marlins will be in rebuilding mode after the loss of their top stars during the offseason. In short, seven of nine Cubs hits were extra base hits, including three home runs. He stole three bases this spring, after stealing eight all of the last season. "We will compete. Our fans will get to know these guys (Marlins players), and they are going to like them".

Meanwhile, the Cubs did enough on Day 1 to show why many believe they have a date with October they can't refuse.

The Cubs signed right-hander Yu Darvish to a $126 million, six-year contract in February, and he joins a talent-rich rotation that also includes Kyle Hendricks, Jose Quintana and Tyler Chatwood.

Young struggled at first facing pro pitching for the first time but by his second month his swing was sweet again. An hour after the season-opening home run, Cerami made the plunge into the crisp water.

The opening day matchup featuring the Chicago Cubs at Miami Marlins is scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m.

But she adds that there's still "much more that needs to be done" to ensure the safety and security of Jewish people. One of the suspects in custody, a 29-year-old man, was a neighbor of Kanol and knew her well, Le Figaro reported.

The Cubs have a triple-A team in Des Moines, Iowa (Iowa Cubs), a double-A team in Knoxville, Tenn.

Former Laney standout Luke Tendler went 2-2 with a double and a run scored. With only the Cardinals and Brewers to worry about in the NL Central, a fourth straight postseason appearance - something that's never happened to the franchise since the first World Series was played 115 years ago - seems like a fait accompli.

"I don't think anyone in the dugout [thought] a single was coming there". It seems fitting that the Cubs are playing in the first game of the new year, so we will see how that goes here. That's what you look at. You have to play the game relaxed and confident or things are not going to go your way.

"I think the nation is listening", Rizzo told The Chicago Tribune. "I feel this offense is dynamic".

Fifteen years later, with three championship rings to his name and an express lane pass into the Hall of Fame, the 44-year-old Cubs president still admits to having opening day butterflies. "I'm glad I'm moving up, though".
