Get out the brooms, folks
With today's 5-3 victory in Chicago over the Cubs, the Reds were able to:
+ Sweep the series.
+ Be the first team in MLB to clinch a playoff spot.
+ Trim their magic number to clinch the National League Central to two.
+ Allow Johnny Cueto to become the first Reds pitcher to win 18 games or more in a season since Pete Schourek in 1995.
+ Put themself in great position to clinch the Central in front of their hometown fans this weekend.
