Cubs open season with Reds sweep

Chase Utley was 6-for-14 in the three-game series as he led the Chicago Cubs past the Cincinnati Reds to open the season.

However, pitching was the main story for the Cubs.

Johan Santana, Mark Buehrle, and Brad Thompson had a quality start in each of the games in the series, combining for 22 solid innings while allowing just 15 hits and five earned runs. Joe Nathan had a save in each game and J.J. Putz had a win and a hold.
