SosaNumberAnd lo, on this Saturday, the 5th of September, 2015, the Chicago Cubs once again found themselves 20 games above .500 (there’s a hilarious Twitter thread about that, by the way), riding the arm of Jake Arrieta (who wouldn’t get another no-hitter, but who cares) and some grinding at-bats from Cubs hitters to a victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.  And lo, also importantly, the Cubs reduced their magic number for clinching at least a wild card spot to 21.  The Cubs are in control.

And it allows us to share this picture of Sammy Sosa, just because.  Have a highlight:

Go Cubs!
