  • Opening Day for Cubs, White Sox; Cubs' Happ homers on first pitch

For Anthony Rizzo, the Cubs' first baseman, the shooting was intensely personal because he attended the school and left spring training to be in the community after the shooting. Urena was able to retire both Willson Contreras and Kyle Schwarber which made for a two-out, two-on situation. In all, Urena lasted four innings, allowing five runs, six hits and four walks.

Early-season baseball is always tough to predict, but on the surface these teams seem pretty cut-and-dried. According to Baseball Reference, Urena is the first pitcher in MLB history to hit three batters on Opening Day. He threw 36 pitches as the Cubs batted around in the first, scoring three runs.

Anthony Rizzo, an alumnus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, went 1-for-4 with a home run against the Marlins Thursday.

But Lester was not his best self Thursday, or even a reasonable facsimile of himself.

"I think we're going to be more well-rounded this year overall as an offensive group", the Cubs' Ben Zobrist said.

After falling behind 3-0 and 4-1, the Marlins rallied to tie the score 4-4 in the third. "It just felt really good". He recorded two starts against Chicago a year ago and assembled a 2-0 record with a 2.45 ERA and eight strikeouts. "The players that we have here had great Spring Trainings, and they're looking forward to getting the season underway". It started with a triple by Derek Dietrich that in all fairness would have been a very hard ball to catch in the first place, but he did commit an error on another single by Anderson letting the ball get by him and roll all the way to the wall. That's less than half the Cubs' projected $183 million.

Anderson looked sharp in his first game of the season.

"For them to get bullied on Twitter by some guy with strong fingers, I think it's pretty amusing". However, the Cubs bullpen pitched 5.2 innings of scoreless relief to bail out the ineffective veteran starter Jon Lester.

The Cubs are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games when playing on the road against the Marlins.

So what exactly propelled the Cubs to an 8-4 win against the Marlins?
