Cubs-Brewers Preview

(AP) -- The Chicago Cubs have put themselves in position to perhaps conclude a special regular season with another memorable accomplishment.

Still in the hunt to host next week's NL wild-card game, the visiting Cubs try to close out the season with an eight-game win streak Sunday against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Kyle Hendricks allowed one hit and struck out eight in six innings and Addison Russell delivered a RBI single in the second that was the difference in Saturday's 1-0 victory. Winners in 14 of the last 18, the Cubs (96-65) are one game behind Pittsburgh in the race for the top wild-card spot.
