Holy cow! The Cubs downed the Cards 7-0 in St. Louis on Wednesday to take the series and lower the magic number to win the NL Central to ONE!
Jon Lester pitched a great game (8 IP, 8 K, 3 H, 1 BB, 0 ER) and even knocked in a run, Grandpa homered, and Rizzo homered twice to pace the Cubs' offense. The Cubs' win clinched a playoff berth for the second year in a row.
The Cubs return to Wrigley on Thursday with a chance to clinch the NL Central Division title -- their first since 2008 -- with a win against Milwaukee. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. Central Time.
