Chicago Cubs Clinching Scenarios: Saturday

The Chicago Cubs can potentially clinch their third straight division title on Saturday, but they would need a little bit of help to make it happen.

The Cubs, who currently hold a one-game lead over the Milwaukee Brewers in the Central Division race, will take on the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field on Saturday afternoon. If they can beat the Cardinals for the second straight day, then they will have clinched at least a share of the Central Division crown, dropping their magic number to one.

In that situation, the Cubs could clinch the title with a Brewers loss to the Detroit Tigers, as those teams will square off at Miller Park on Saturday evening.

If the Cubs and Brewers both win on Saturday, then the Cubs could still clinch the division Sunday with a win over the Cardinals.

First pitch between the Cubs and Cardinals is set for 12:05 p.m., and the game will air on Fox. The Brewers and Tigers will get underway at 6:05 p.m., and that game will air on FS1.
