Cubs, on verge of clinching division, visit St. Louis

It took a little while for the Chicago Cubs to get going this season after ending 108 years of frustration by winning the World Series last fall.

Now, the Cubs are on the verge of completing the first step toward defending their long-awaited championship -- winning a division title.

Chicago takes a magic number of two for clinching the National League Central into the opener of a four-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium on Monday.
