CHICAGO - It's that time of the year where every series counts in a division championship race - especially in those games against division opponents.
The Cubs have taken care of business so far in that category during this homestand, knocking off the Pirates in two-straight games while aiming for sweep on Wednesday night.
All those wins are necessary with the Brewers and Cardinals still in striking distance in the NL Central in what has been an inconsistent year for Joe Maddon's team.
Jared Wyllys of Sporting News discussed the team as they head toward the final month of the regular season. He touched on a number of categories with Jarrett Payton and Josh Frydman on Wednesday's program.
