Cubs sweep! Dempster pitches a gem; Bobby Scales extends his hitting streak to 7 to start his MLB career along with 4 RBI today; Ascanio gets his first MLB AB; Cubs score 11 runs without a single HR; the Cubs get a team total 10 BBs. All in all, a great game on a beautiful day!
Cubs as of this post are now just .5 games out of 1st place. Things are starting to look pretty good.
Bring on the Astros!

Cubs are on the verge of sweeping the Padres. Also, the Cards lost! Down another 2.
There's a 3 team tie for first in the division; Cardinals, Reds and Brewers. The Cubs are 1/2 game back. Things are looking good for the battered Cubs to be right there with all the injuries they've suffered.
One more game against the Padres today and then the Astros this weekend. Cubs have been 4-1 against the 'Stros this season. Good news for us!

Cardinals drop one to the Reds. Number drops. It would have been nice to see the Cubs hold that 2-1 lead, but Heilman screwed that up. Also, no healp from the 9th. Ronnie was very upset on the radio...
We'll hopefully tonight they'll take the Brewers. It's very important.

Great game by Lilly! Cubs win!
Theriot & Lilly are our new power hitters to lead the Cubs to a 2 game win streak for the first time in too long. This game even had biz Z pinch hitting which apparently is becoming a regular thing. All in all, a great Saturday on a beautiful day in Chicago.
On a special note: good luck to the Bulls and Blackhawks tonight. I hope game 7 for the Bulls is half as entertaining as game 6 was. For anybody who missed it, here is a great recap of game 6.

How The Number Works
The Magic Number is affected by one of two events, a Cubs win or the best opponent losing. The number is 163 at the beginning of the season. When the number hits 0, the Cubs have clinched the NL Central and are in the PLAYOFFS!
This site represents the Magic Number for clinching the National League Central Division . If the Wild Card becomes relevant for getting into the post season, this site may contain both. In that case, the Wild Card number will clearly be denote.
Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with comments and suggestions. Also, drop a Cubs theme'd photo with a story. It may be posted during future number updates.
