The Chicago Cubs will be looking to do something on Tuesday night that they haven't accomplished in over 20 years.
When they take the field against the Los Angeles Angels, the Cubs will be looking to win their second straight game to open up the season. Winning two in a row at the start of the year isn't a frequent occurrence for the team, as they haven't begun a season 2-0 since they won their first four games of the 1995 campaign.
During the intervening years, the Cubs have won plenty of openers, but they've also had plenty of bad starts too. Their worst start occurred in 1997, when they lost their first 14 games in a row to set a new team record for futility.
When they take on the Angels Tuesday, they'll have plenty of momentum to build on. Behind Jake Arrieta, the Cubs won 9-0 on Monday night, as Miguel Montero and Matt Szczur each drove in three runs.
In this game, they'll have another star pitcher on the hill, as Jon Lester will look to keep Mike Trout and the Angels in check. The Angels managed just three hits in their Monday loss, and their task likely won't get much easier Tuesday.
