CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs will experience the thrill of winning the National League Central title in unusual fashion after they host the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday afternoon.Milwaukee won the series opener 5-4 on Thursday night, preventing the Cubs from clinching before a sellout crowd at Wrigley Field.Chicago, though, wrapped up its first division title since 2008 when the St. Louis Cardinals lost to the San Francisco Giants 6-2 about 1 1/2 hours later. The Cubs decided not to hang around the clubhouse to await the Cardinals outcome, instead choosing to wait another day to celebrate.The Cubs boast three starting pitchers with legitimate cases for NL Cy Young Award attention, but the Brewers came to town this week with some pitching that has even surpassed Chicagos of late.Brewers right-hander Chase Anderson (8-11, 4.53 ERA) may be emblematic of the improvement as he brings a 4-1 record and 2.30 ERA over his last nine starts into the Friday game.Since Aug. 22, Milwaukee pitchers have posted a big league-leading 2.73 ERA over the past 23 games, allowing 40 runs in 131 2/3 innings.That narrowly tops second-place Chicago, which has a 2.90 ERA in the same span followed by the Los Angeles Dodgers (3.05).Its certainly a positive side. I think it tells you that its in there and that we can have above average pitching here, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. The 25 games is not 162 games and thats what this team over here (the Cubs) have done. ... (But) knowing that weve got it and weve got six guys doing it is a good thing for us.Anderson is 8-11 with a 4.53 ERA as he makes his 29th appearance and 28th start of the season.He started Saturday in St. Louis and earned a no-decision in a loss, allowing three hits in 5 2/3 shutout innings. Anderson is 1-0 with a 1.93 ERA in two starts against Chicago -- both this season.The Cubs counter with right-hander John Lackey, who makes his third start since an August stay on the disabled list with a right shoulder strain. He missed 19 games after being sidelined on Aug. 19 (retroactive to Aug. 14).Lackey is 0-1 since coming back. He didnt get the decision in a five-inning start Sept. 4 in the Cubs 3-2 victory over the Giants and allowed two runs over six innings in a 2-1 Chicago loss in Houston on Sunday.Lackey is 9-8 with a 3.35 ERA as he makes his 27th start of the season and 15th at home. He is 5-2 with a 3.09 ERA in 10 career starts against Milwaukee, including 0-1 with a 3.00 ERA in two starts this season.Cubs manager Joe Maddon said he has no concerns whether Lackey is fully recovered from his shoulder issues.No, hes been good, Maddon said. Ive not noticed anything. Hes been fine.Chicago brings two of its aces back around to conclude the series.Right-hander Jake Arrieta (17-6, 2.91 ERA) goes against Brewers rookie Zach Davies (10-7, 3.87) on Saturday. Davies and fellow rookie Junior Guerra have combined for 19 wins this season, the third most combined by two rookies in franchise history.Right-hander Kyle Hendricks (15-7, 2.03) who pitched eight no-hit innings in his last outing, pitches Sunday against righty Wily Peralta (6-10, 5.42).Discount NCAA Jerseys .

Down by seven with 90 seconds left in regulation, thats where they looked comfortable.Miami Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi is out to build on his rookie season and says new head coach Adam Gase can help him prosper.Having been drafted in the fifth round by the Dolphins last year, Ajayi had to look on in the early weeks of the season as injury kept him out of action and, disappointingly for the London-born star, their Wembley date with the New York Jets.Defeat to the Jets resulted in the departure of head coach Joe Philbin after a 1-3 start, tight ends coach Dan Campbell took over for the remainder of the season on an interim basis. Adam Gase has been confirmed as the new Dolphins head coach Highly-rated Gase has arrived to take his first head coach position after impressive spells with Denver Broncos and, last year, as Chicago Bears offensive coordinator with hopes high that he can get a talented Dolphins squad to improve on an inconsistent 6-10 record.Ajayi has already held conversations with Gase and cant wait to get started, telling Sky Sports: Everything that I have heard about coach Gase has been great, from all of his former players its been really great to hear.It has been really interesting to see it unfold with another new coach. I have had the privilege of speaking to him on the phone, and our conversation was great. Ins & Outs Keep a track of who is moving where in the NFL From the conversation with him, he said he liked my skill-set and understands that I can do a lot of things. From seeing what he can do with past running backs like Knowshon Moreno for the Broncos, Jeremy Langford, Matt Forte for the Bears.He was able to get those guys to produce, it makes me happy about what he can do with me and the other running backs on our team so I am really excited.Ive also got to meet with my running backs coach and sit down face-to-face with him. I am excited about what he has got planned for our team, just from talking I think we will be heading in the right direction under coach Gase.

That helped boost my confidence moving forward and in all my other games I was really comfortable out there on the field. Rookie reflections We look back at some of the names to impress in their first year All that hard work that I had put in, when I finally got the first touchdown I was glad as it would have been hard to get through the offseason for real upset with myself if I hadnt. The way I got it too, I was able to display who I am, I am going to push through no matter what and you cant stop me, Im going to drive and get to where I am going and that is the end zone.
