#Cubs and Montgomery face Brewers
Lefty Mike Montgomery gets the start on Thursday when the Cubs open a four-game series against the Brewers at Wrigley Field. With a win, the Cubs can clinch the NL Central Division for the first time since 2008. If they do clinch, the Cubs would become the first team to do so on Sept. 15 or earlier since the 2008 Angels (Sept. 10). The last NL team to clinch a division title by this date was the 2005 Cardinals (Sept. 15).
First pitch from Wrigley Field is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CT, and the game will be broadcast on Comcast Sportsnet and also MLB Network. Here’s the lineup:
