Without a doubt, one of the best games of the season.  It was called Opening Day 2.0 because it was the first game with full attendance since 2019.  Kohl Stewart struggled against the Cardinals and left the game in the 5th inning and the Cardinals took a 5-1 lead.  But the Cubs will make a great comeback.

The bottom of the 5th, the Cubs cut the lead to 5-4.  The big hit was an RBI triple by Sergio Alcantara, who also scores on an error by Yadier Molina trying to pick him off of third base.  

Anthony Rizzo ties the game in the sixth inning with an amazing 14 pitch at bat off Cardinals pitcher, Daniel Ponce Deleon.  

Bill Murray's seventh inning stretch was amazing and while he was in the booth, the Cubs took the lead 7-5 on Joc Pederson's 2-run double that nearly cleared the wall for his 2nd home run of the game.  Willson Contreras gives the Cubs an insurance run with an 8th inning home run to give the Cubs an 8-5 victory.  The Cubs are now 1/2 game in front of the Brewers for first place and are now 4 games ahead of the rival Cardinals.
