Hello all! Thomas Frost here to cover some baseball for you. Into the last 7 days of the regular season and still lots up for grabs. We've got the Cubs and the Brewers from 7:10 tonight. Team news and other game information to follow for you to mull over before the start.

Here's how the NL Central looks currently. The Cubs could all but secure the division with a win tonight.

Even if the Brewers win tonight their best bet barring utter capitulation by the Cubs is the wildcard with regards to the postseason. Here's how the NL Wildcard is looking. D-backs will be there but who will play them in the NL Wildcard game in a week and a half?

Important games in that race for the 2nd wildcard spot are this game, as well as the Cardinals and Pirates which has just started and the Rockies are in San Diego tonight. Starts in just less than 3 hours that particular game.

The Brewers have got 7 games left. 1 against the Cubs, 3 against the Reds and 3 against the Cardinals. The Rockies have got 7 games left. 1 against the Padres, 3 against the Marlins and 3 against the Dodgers. The Cardinals have got 8 games left. 1 against the Pirates, 4 against the Cubs and 3 against the Brewers.

That's all the information you need for now. Join me in 20 minutes for the first pitch for this must win game for the Brew Crew!
