Hey hey! The first place Cubs opened the abbreviated 2020 season with Kyle Hendricks tossing a complete game shutout in a 3-0 victory over the Brewers. The Professor was at his best (9 IP, 0 ER, 3 H, 0 BB, 9 K), and homers from Happ and Rizzo gave the North Siders all the offense they'd need.

Hendricks' gem took only 103 pitches, and Milwaukee's three hits were all singles. Happ's two-run shot was a no-doubter, and Rizzo's 8th inning blast gave the Cubs an insurance run. The victory was also the first of manager David Ross's career.

Game two of the series -- and the season -- is underway at Wrigley. 1 game down, 59 to go!

Go Cubs go!
