This week: Atlanta gets a shot at Phillies

POSTED: September 20, 2010 12:00 a.m.

The Braves have fallen behind the Phillies in the NL East, but here’s there chance to catch up. They’ll play a three-game series in Philadelphia starting today.

The hope for the Braves will be to put themselves back in the discussion of division contender as opposed to the Wild Card race, where they’re currently battling with the NL West. The Wild Card is the last thing the Braves want — they have a losing record on the road and the majors’ best record at home.

After the Phillies, the Braves have Thursday off before traveling to Washington for a three-game series against the last-place Nationals, who beat them 2-1 in a series played in Atlanta last week.
