A trip to the World Series isn't all that's at stake in the National League Championship Series.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck have each placed a friendly wager with their counterpart in Chicago as the Dodgers take on the Cubs.

"When @Dodgers win #NLCS, he'll send a 6pack of local beer & fly our flag at Chicago City Hall," Garcetti said Saturday night in a tweet that tagged the Windy City's Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Not to be outdone, Emanuel tweeted his belief that the Cubs will win the series, after which Garcetti will send him an L.A.-area brew and "fly the W" flag at L.A. City Hall.

"The losing Mayor will also donate to support immigrants through LA Justice Fund or Chicago's Legal Protection Fund," Emanuel added.

Meanwhile, Beck took to social media to announce the "same bet as last year" with Superintendent Eddie Johnson of the Chicago Police Department.

According to Beck's tweet, Johnson will send Chicago-style pizza to the head of the Los Angeles Police Department if the Dodgers win the NLCS. Beck will send food from Langer's Deli if the Cubs come out on top.

The Dodgers lead the series, 1-0, going into Game 2 on Sunday afternoon at Chavez Ravine.
