The Milwaukee Brewers lost a home game to the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night.
But they still had a reason to get together and celebrate in their clubhouse.
That was due to the Chicago Cubs losing to the Atlanta Braves and the Brewers clinching the NL Central.
Each season when a team clinches a playoff berth, they celebrate in the locker room.
But most times it is after a team wins a game of their own.
Milwaukee still wanted to celebrate even after a loss.
That is because winning the division title is so much more than just one game.
According to Adam McCalvy, Corbin Burnes was in the clubhouse when the Braves took a late lead over the Cubs.
He talked about how the staff started to get the clubhouse ready for a celebration.

The Brewers deserved the opportunity to celebrate after having a strong season.
Before the year many people were uncertain how good they could be.
There were questions about how good their lineup was and if they had enough to keep up with the top teams.
Milwaukee has won 88 games this year and has seemingly answered all of those questions.
One spot where they have thrived is with their pitching rotation.
It all starts with Burnes, who has turned in another strong season.
He has a 10-8 record on the year with a 3.46 ERA and is leading the league in WHIP with 1.060.
Along with Burnes, they have Brandon Woodruff and Freddy Peralta.
Not to mention one of the best closers in baseball, Devin Williams.
Many people may still be overlooking the Brewers, but they are a sneaky pick to win the NL pennant.
