BREWERS 5, CARDINALS 4
ST. LOUIS -- In his St. Louis debut, Greg Holland walked four batters in the 10th inning and forced home the go-ahead run as milwaukee defeats st. louis 5-4. The 32-year-old Holland, who tied for the NL lead with 41 saves for Colorado last season, was signed as a free agent on opening day. He pitched two innings at Class A before joining the Cardinals earlier in the day. Holland (0-1) walked two batters to begin the 10th. After a sacrifice bunt, an intentional walk loaded the bases. The three-time All-Star closer then walked Orlando Arcia and was pulled. Matt Albers (2-0) gave up the tying run in the ninth. The Cardinals loaded the bases with no outs, and Dexter Fowler's sacrificed fly tied it at 4. Brewers newcomer Lorenzo Cain tripped over the foot of Cardinals first baseman Jose Martinez on a play in the ninth, and both exited. Martinez bruised his right Achilles.
RAYS 5, WHITE SOX 4
CHICAGO -- Mallex Smith matched a career high with four hits, Joey Wendle hit his first homer and Tampa Bay stopped an eight-game losing streak by beating the white sox 5-4. A bullpen that blew late leads in two of the three games at Boston last weekend got the job done after a shaky start by Chris Archer (1-0). Alex Colome escaped a second-and-third jam in the ninth by getting three straight groundouts, retiring Leury Garcia on a game-ending bouncer to first. Miguel Gonzalez (0-2) gave up four runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings. The White Sox are still winless at home this season. They've opened 0-4 at Guaranteed Rate Field, and haven't lost their first five home games since 1975 at Comiskey Park. Carson Fulmer starts for Chicago against Tampa Bay lefty Blake Snell.
The Chicago Cubs try again to play their home opener, a day after a winter scene at Wrigley Field forced a snowout. The Cubs are only team in the majors that hasn't had a home game. The forecast is for clear skies and temperatures in the low 40s when Tyler Chatwood starts against Pittsburgh.

dETROIT (AP) – Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores says he’s undecided about Stan Van Gundy’s future with the franchise.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Olympians who were abused by former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar are supporting legislation that would make California the first state to require doctors to tell their patients if they are on probation. Olympic gold medalist Jordyn Wieber says the measure could help protect women from abuse. Democratic state Sen. Jerry Hill says roughly 120 doctors are placed on probation every year in California for infractions such as sexual misconduct or medical errors. Patients can find information online about which doctors are on probation if they know where to look. The measure would require doctors to disclose that information. Versions of the proposal have died twice before. This year, Hill is pointing to increased attention around sexual assault in advocating for the measure.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – The New York Giants have opened their first organized team activities under new coach Pat Shurmur with star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in the building. Speaking on a conference call Monday, Shurmur said he hadn’t yet talked to Beckham, whose name has been mentioned in trade speculation in recent months. The coach didn’t know how many of the voluntary activities Beckham planned to attend or the condition of his left ankle. The ankle was broken in the fifth game of a 3-13 season that led to the firing of coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese .
