MILWAUKEE --The National League Wild Card game is set.

The Chicago Cubs will hit the road and play the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday night.

Cubs Starter Jake Arrieta (22-6, 1.77 ERA) will take the mound against the Pirates' Gerritt Cole, (19-8, 2.60 ERA).

The teams for the wild card game have been known for days, but the location was decided on the final day of the regular season.

The Cubs needed a win, and a Pirates loss, to have the game at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-1.

The Cubs led off the first with a three-run inning, thanks in large part to Anthony Rizzo's two-run double.

Dan Haren got the win for the Cubs.

But then the Pirates beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-0.
