Event of the day

***The NLDS Game 4 in Chicago has been postponed due to inclement weather, rescheduled for tomorrow.***

Our event of the day...

is the MLB Division Series match between the Chicago Cubs and the Washington Nationals at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Before yesterday’s action the series was tied 1-1 between the two sides. The Cubs won the first game 3-0 which was followed by a 6-3 win for the Nationals, both games were at Nationals Park in Washington DC. The Cubs now lead the delicately-poised series 2-1 after a 2-1 win yesterday. Tonight is set to be a tense but exciting evening of baseball.

The Cubs finished the regular season top of the Central National League while the Nationals topped the East National League. The Cubs have the chance of winning the series today and advancing to the League Championship Series which will determine which team has won the National League. It is the winner of the League Championship Series that will go into the World Series. Effectively, tonight is a season-defining game in which the Nationals must avoid defeat to continue their postseason campaign. It’s sure to be an entertaining encounter between the Cubs and the Nationals.

Honourable mentions...

It’s an important day of South American FIFA World Cup Qualifiers as fifth place Peru host fourth place Colombia at Estadio Nacional de Lima with the two teams separated by a single point. Argentina are in danger of missing their first World Cup since 1970 and must win against Ecuador tonight to stand any chance of at least claiming fifth and the playoff spot.
