Covers Preview -

When the Chicago Cubs broke spring training in April, they proceeded to win eight of their first nine games to start the 2016 season, and they hope a similar approach to the final week of the campaign will result in the same type of results in the playoffs. The Cubs continue their all-hands-on-deck tune-up for the postseason with a three-game road series against the Cincinnati Reds that begins Friday.
