Chicago Cubs Clinch Central Division, Take NL Central Back-To-Back Years

On Wednesday night, Chicago clinched its second consecutive NL Central title with a 5-1 victory.

The collision involved Santa Rosa County's very own Addison Russell, Cubs shortstop. "Two games under.500 at the All-Star break; if we had a bad road trip and a bad homestand to start the second half, we're selling".

The Chicago Cubs had an opportunity to clinch the NL Central Wednesday with a win over the St. With the loss, St. Louis was officially eliminated from wild card contention, meaning that for the second year in a row the Cardinals won't qualify for the postseason.

Louis Cardinals' playoff hopes with a 2-1 win on Thursday night, and the way the game ended just added insult to injury for the Redbirds. "I know after that last one, if he needed more of an edge, he could certainly have it today". So, this series should be a fantastic one.

They've already won the most elusive championship in American team sports with the 2016 title - and then beat the hangover to become the first World Series victor in five years even make the playoffs the next year. Leonys Martin will start in center field and lead off the order for the defending champs.

METS 7, BRAVES 1 Terry Collins was a victor in perhaps his final home game as NY manager as his team beat visiting Atlanta behind rookie pitcher Robert Gsellman. Gant will be making his second start this season. "Came in here and-usually that's when we don't have any games left to play".

So, here goes my National League predictions. It earned him a spot in the rich lore and history of the Cubs-Cardinals rivalry. LA has been playing too well not to advance past the first round. But all six men he faced in the seventh got on safely as Chicago (89-69) took control. With most of their talent returning, a World Series hangover for Chicago let the Cardinals back in the division race this season-before dealing the definitive deathblow to the Cardinals through the head-to-head series. One teammate seems to think so. That series was so taut that if the Cubs win another World Series, somebody in the Ricketts family might suggest rings for the Brewers and Bob Uecker.

I'll take the Indians over the Red Sox in six to set up a rematch of last year's World Series. And few teams can say they've gotten to do it while defeating a division rival at the same time. Scott's "From the Cheap Seats" can be found in The Paper every Friday.
