Cubs Clinch National League Central Beat Reds 6-0

The Chicago Cubs clinched the National League Central Division Friday night as they blanked the Cincinnati Reds, while the Milwaukee Brewers lost to the San Diego Padres 6-3. Carlos Zambrano the fiery pitcher who got into an altercation with a former teammate earlier in the year, pitched 7 innings of scoreless ball giving up only six hits. Zambrano ends the regular season with an 18-13 record. Chicago left fielder Alfonso Soriano set the tone by leading off the game with a homer off of Reds starter Bronson Arroyo who ends the season with a 9-15 mark. Chicago is back in the Post Season for the first time since 2003.

Meanwhile the Milwaukee Brewers who led the division for a good portion of the season before they faded down the stretch lost to Greg Maddux and San Diego in front of their home fans. The loss eliminates them from the Post Season, while San Diego assured themselves then no worse than a tie for the Wild Card with the win.
