Cubs come through with a BIG RBI double by Colvin in the 8th. Combined with Lilly's 3 hit shut out over 7 innings, the Cubs are able to take 2 of 3 from the Dodgers! Good thing Lou put Colvin in LF as part of the double switch in the 8th. A hairy pitching appearance by Marshall in the 8th is still enough to get the job done while Aramis gets a much needed day off and hopefully will be back in the lineup by Friday.
Bring on the Red Birds!!

Cubs shut out the opener with Dodgers 3-0. Dempster pitched a gem (and finally got a W for it) and D Lee showed signs of snapping out of his slump by knocking in all 3 RBI with a HR. Meanwhile the Cubs are now only 4 games in back of the slumping Cards and surging Reds. Looks like the NL Central is shaping up to be a good race this year.
Let's see Cubs, D Lee & Gorzelanny repeat that performance again on Wed. night!

Cubs are coming off a nice road trip and are starting to play some good ball. Let's hope it continues into this week's home stand. Carlos Silva continue to be surprisingly affective earning Hendry at least one A+ for this past off season's work in having traded him for MB. Check out Dave Kaplan's assessment of the Cubs here for more.

Nice extra inning W last night despite the blown save. The mighty Cardinals have fallen and the Cubs, as of today, are chasing the Reds. Time for them to start winning and make good on Marlon Byrd's guarantee.
Cubs go for the sweep today. Yes, it's a two game series, but a sweep's a sweep!

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.
