Chicago Cubs Magic number is one, that is right sports fans it is not even the end of September and the cubs are the only team with a shot of clinching their division, Jon Lester and company trounced the St.Louis Cardinals 7-0 in a 3 hit shutout of the Cardinals in the midday showdown at Busch Stadium. Jon Lester is now 17-4 with today’s victory. Their offense was fueled by catcher David Ross, and possible MVP candidate Anthony Rizzo with two home runs. Cubs are standing atop of the MLB Central Division at 93-52 and they are in the lead to gain home field advantage in the playoffs leading to the world series.
Up next for the Cubs is a series at home with the Milwaukee Brewers, Mike Montgomery is on the hill for the cubs while the Brewers are sending Jimmy Nelson to the mound who has a 4.42 ERA in 163 Innings pitched this season, that game will be at 7:05 central time for the first pitch.
This season has been a season that show the cubs have made the moves that they needed to get the pieces that they needed to make another postseason run this year. With adding chapman to the bullpen to solidify their closer position. This is going to be a team to be feared come the postseason, could 2016 finally be the year that the curse of the billy goat is broken?
