Darvish pitching during Saturday's fourth inning
BC-BBN-Pirates-Cubs Ppd, 5th Ld-Writethru, 513Cubs postpone home opener a day because of snowAP Photo CXC101, CXC106, CXC109, CXC104, CXC108, ILCHT105, ILCHT104, ILCHT102, ILCHT103, ILCHT101Eds: Fixes the ellipsis in the last paragraph. The complete-game mastery was Pittsburgh's first since Ivan Nova - who will pitch Monday against the Cubs - shut out the Marlins last April.
Maddon also said the postponement does nothing to take away from the special nature of opening day, and he noted the Cubs have played nine games on the road already, going 5-4 and trailing the first-place Pirates by two games. When it became clear the weather was going to cause trouble, the game was pushed back one hour to handle the effects of the inclement weather as ground crews kicked into gear trying to get the field and stadium cleared of snow. The seventh-year right-hander posted a subpar 4.69 ERA with the Rockies last season, however he did put up a solid 3.49 ERA on the road. It has a major league-best 0.94 ERA through 38 1/3 innings.
However, Joe Maddon would like to see a change from Rizzo in terms of how he goes about his pregame routine.
Rizzo said he's gradually felt better since Friday. Guys are getting quick outs and strikeouts when they need to. He allowed just one earned run, four hits and six walks in six innings in his first start against Cincinnati. Who would have thought a week into the season that Pittsburgh would sit atop the National League Central standings at 7-2? They still haven't played at home.
