The Chicago Cubs' 9-8 win against the Washington Nationals on Thursday night earned them the NLDS title—again! That means that the Friendly Confines will be hosting at least a few more games this year and the bars in Wrigleyville are gonna be packed. Whether you want to join the fun or avoid the crowds, you should probably be aware of the Cubs' postseason schedule.

The first National League Championship Series game will be Cubs at the Dodgers on Saturday, October 14 in Los Angeles. Check out the remainder of the schedule (assuming that the Cubs keep winning) below:
