The Chicago Cubs are headed to the National League Division Series after a 4–0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the wild-card game.
Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta tossed a complete game shutout, yielding just four hits while striking out eleven batters.
This marked the first postseason win for the Cubs since 2003, who will face the St Louis Cardinals in the NLDS. They’re seeking their first World Series title since 1908.
