Cubs take aim at postseason after making big leap

CHICAGO (AP) No matter how the playoffs turn out for the Chicago Cubs, manager Joe Maddon wanted to know one thing.

"How can you possibly be disappointed with anything our players have done this year?" he wondered.

The emergence of several young prospects helped elevate the Cubs to their first postseason appearance in seven years despite finishing third in their division. They visit Pittsburgh on Wednesday night for a matchup of two of the majors' best teams in the NL wild-card game.
