With the Cubs’ victory against the Brewers, the lovable losers (is that even appropriate anymore?) the “magic number” goes down to 4 games to clinch a playoff berth. Read more for a recap:
A rough outing for Jason Hammel saw him give up 3 earned and 5 hits through 5 innings. But, like they have all year, the Cubs’ young bats picked them up with 6 runs in 4 innings. After the Brewers tied it up, Castro broke it open with a RBI double. A 3 run homer by Soler sealed the deal as the Cubbies moved to 88-62. Get pumped!!!
