The Chicago Cubs are moving on to the NLCS, so here is a look at the updated MLB playoff bracket for this postseason
Things did not look all that promising for the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night in Game 4 against the San Francisco Giants, but in the end, they were able to get the job done. With a dramatic comeback in the ninth inning, the Cubs are indeed moving on to the National League Championship Series once again.
With that in the books now, here is a look at the updated playoff bracket with the Cubbies now one step away from the World Series appearance that we’ve all expected from them.
At one point it did look like the even-year magic was in play once again for the Giants, but by the time all was said and done on Tuesday night, we found out that wasn’t the case at all. Now, the Cubs are in a position to potentially end the curse.
Now, the only thing they have to do is sit and wait to see who they will be playing for the right to show up in the World Series representing the National League. Thursday night, the Dodgers and Nationals will face off in a pivotal Game 5 to see who will be taking on the Cubs. Earlier in the day on Tuesday, the Dodgers were able to avoid elimination and force the decisive game that will be played on Thursday.
Then, of course, as you can see above, the American League side of the bracket is all set. The Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays will be facing one another to see who will eventually be taking on the champions of the American League.
But tonight, the only thing that we can do is sat congratulations to the Chicago Cubs and wait for Thursday to get here so we can see who they’ll be doing battle with.
