6


5-3 Cubs! 

What a game! The Cubbies take it in ten and bring the Magic Number down to 6!

The Cubs came out to an early 2-0 lead but found themselves trailing 3-2 in the 9th. A single by Javy sent Happ home to tie it up, and a long shot by Kris in the 10th, along with lights out pitching from Davis,  sealed the deal!

The Cubs will face the Brew Crew three more times before finishing the season against the Cards and Reds.

Let's Go!

The Cubs have 10 regular season games left. The Cubs Magic Number to win the NL Central equals:

163 - (Cubs wins + losses of NL Central rival with fewest losses).

As of now, that's 163 - (85 + 72), or 163 - 157. 163 - 157 = 6.

Thus, the Cubs Magic Number is 6. Follow CMN on Twitter!
