CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs will host the St. Louis Cardinals in the Sunday night major league opener on April 5.

Originally scheduled for April 6, the game was moved up to become ESPN's opening national telecast of the season.

Chicago said Friday the remainder of the three-game series will be played on April 7 and 8, with April 9 as an off day. The Cubs originally had April 7 off, with games against the Cardinals the following two days.
