The postseason picture is finally taking shape.

Thanks to the Chicago Cubs' clinching of the NL Central on Wednesday, the first postseason series has been determined, with Chicago set to square off against the Washington Nationals in a five-game series beginning in the nation's capital Oct. 6.

Cubs pitcher John Lackey, meanwhile, said his side isn't too preoccupied thinking about its playoff opponent just yet.

"I think we're going to have a good time tonight," he told MLB.com's Carrie Muskat as the Cubs celebrated their division title in the visiting clubhouse at Busch Stadium. "I don't think we care about the Nationals."

In the other NLDS matchup, the Los Angeles Dodgers, who clinched the NL West earlier this month, will face the winner of the NL wild-card game - a matchup that's not yet determined.

The two NL wild-card spots are currently occupied by the Arizona Diamondbacks - who've clinched a berth into the one-game playoff - and the Colorado Rockies.
