CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee have made a friendly wager on the playoff series between the Chicago Cubs and San Francisco Giants.

The National League Division Series between the Cubs and Giants started Friday night at Wrigley Field.

Emanuel says the Cubs are “the best team in baseball” and he fully expects them to win. He says if the Cubs lose he’ll send a variety of Chicago products to San Francisco, including a cheesecake from Eli’s Cheesecake and a bottle of single barrel bourbon from KOVAL Distillery.

He’ll also make a donation to a charity of Lee’s choice.

If San Francisco loses, Lee will make a contribution to Chicago’s Becoming a Man mentoring program and send two bottles of local whiskey.
