The Cubbies took down the Rockies again on Saturday, and the Brewers fell to the Marlins, so both the division and wild card numbers drop. 155 games down, 7 to go.
The Cubs elimination number for the division is 1, so chances are good that in the next few days only the wild card number will matter. Until then...
Cubs Magic Number for the NL Central Division title:  14
Cubs Magic Number for an NL Wild Card berth:  7

Note:  in the event of ties in the standings at the end of the regular season, MLB will no longer have "Game 163" tiebreakers. Instead, regular season head-to-head records will be used to break the tie. If the Cubs were to win their next seven games, and if the Brewers were to lose their next seven games, the Cubs would win the regular season series 8-5 and would win the division.
