Okay, the Cubs didn’t wrap it up tonight. But consider: The Marlins won 20 of their last 24 home games before this weekend, and the Cubs came to town and took two out of three. Considering that Clement and Zambrano pitched two of those games, I’d say the Cubs are still in pretty good shape.
Why? Because the Marlins have to beat Mark Prior and Kerry Wood back to back in Wrigley Field to get to the World Series.
Not gonna happen.
