Offense Comes Out to Play in Cubs Win over A's!

Even though this is an inter-league game, a win is a win, and the Cubs looked great in this win. Ryan Dempster looked good as he pitched into the seventh inning, with 5 consecutive scoreless innings. But, the big moments from this game came from Alfonso Soriano. Yes, that Soriano. The same player that we have all called out for being payed way too much for producing so little on the field gave all Cubs fans a great game (and win) tonight. Not only did he have two RBI's tonight, but Soriano put down a great sacrifice bunt and almost beat out the throw to first. Soriano was hustling, yes hustling, down the line. Go Cubs!!! Now let's beat the Oakland A's tomorrow.

How The Number Works

The Chicago Cubs Magic Number is derived by the following equation: Total Number of Games + 1 - Wins by the Cubs - Losses by Best Opponent.

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.
