By Alex Iniguez

It’s official.

The Chicago Cubs are into the 2008 MLB Postseason. With a 5-4 victory against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Cubs clinched the Central Division for the second straight season. This is the first back-to-back playoff appearance since 1908.

The Cubs now have a 93-60 record, good for second-best in the major leagues, with nine games to play. The team is now focusing on making a deep run in the playoffs and trying to win its first World Series title since 1908. The Cubs’ most likely opponent as of Saturday is Philadelphia. The Phillies currently hold a two-game lead in the Wild Card standings ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers.
