If the Chicago Cubs beat the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night, they could potentially accomplish something that they never have.
The Cubs, who just took two of three games from the Chicago White Sox over the weekend, have a two and a half game lead over the Milwaukee Brewers in the Central Division, but they could wrap up at least a wild card game berth on Monday night if they win, and if the Colorado Rockies lose their game to the Philadelphia Phillies.
If both results occur, then the Cubs would make the postseason for the fourth straight year, something that the team has never done before in its 140-year history.
The Cubs are also trying to win the Central Division title for the third straight year, another feat the team has never accomplished.
The Cubs and Pirates will get started at 7:05 p.m. at Wrigley Field, while the Rockies and Phillies will get underway at 7:40 p.m. at Coors Field in Denver.
