(CHICAGO) -- The calendar turned to September, but the Cubs hope no one wakes them up from how August ended.
22-6 record, best in any many in franchise history since September of 1945. Fifteen game lead in the division, most for a Cubs team since 1907.
The Labor Day weekend series with the Giants was circled as a possible NLCS preview early in the season, but now San Francisco is just fighting to make the playoffs.
The Giants come to Wrigley trending in the opposite direction of the Cubs after a 9-19 August, losing their NL West lead to the Dodgers and holding on to the Wild Card by just a couple games.
Sports Feed host Josh Frydman was live from the Friendly Confines to preview the start of the series and talk to Jarrett Payton about the Cubs bullpen concerns, Addison Russell's spectacular catch Wednesday night, and the continual MVP campaign for Kris Bryant.
