Cubs look to clinch division title against Cardinals

ST. LOUIS -- The champagne will be on ice Tuesday night in Busch Stadium when the Cubs face the St. Louis Cardinals, with Chicago trying to clinch its second straight National League Central title.

It is taking the Cubs (88-68) much longer to reach this point than it did a year ago, when they poured the bubbly in mid-September and won the division by 17 1/2 games. However, manager Joe Maddon feels his team has finally reached the level of play he has asked for all season.

"We're definitely arriving at the same mental level we've had the last two seasons," he said Monday night after the Cubs' 10-2 rout of St. Louis. "The guys have been there, done that. They know what it's about."
