The Chicago Cubs are the 2017 NL Central Division champions for the second year in a row! They'll continue their quest to defend their 2016 World Series title at 6:31 p.m. Central Time on Friday when they face the Washington Nationals in game one of a National League Division Series.

This marks the second time in Cubs history that they've reached the postseason in three consecutive seasons. It was last accomplished by the 1906-1907-1908 Cubs, who won the World Series in each of those latter two years.

This year's squad is also on a roll, having gone 17-12 in August and 19-9 in September. Since the All-Star break, the Cubs' starters have posted a 3.36 ERA. Kyle Hendricks has been particularly stellar, with a 2.19 ERA during that stretch, and Kyle Schwarber's batting average after the break is 80 points higher than it was before the All-Star break, along with a nearly 200-point increase in his OPS.
