Pirates invade Wrigley Field

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Chicago Cubs Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

The first place Pittsburgh Pirates, sporting a 7-2 record, travel to Chicago where, including postponements for inclement weather, they will be participating in their sixth opening day of the young season. Ivan Nova takes the mound for his third start while the Cubs counter with Tyler Chatwood. Clint Hurdle will be using what has become his favorite lineup, as he also welcomes his new closer, Felipe Vazquez.
