NL East Standings: Braves Tied With Phillies Behind Nationals And Mets

The NL East looks a bit upside-down after just over a week of the 2012 MLB season with the Washington Nationals at the very top and the New York Mets close behind. The Braves now find themselves tied with the Philadelphia Phillies at 3-4, and Atlanta hopes to continue their three-game winning streak tonight against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Despite early season injuries to Chipper Jones and Tim Hudson, the Braves have shown signs of life recently and Mike Minor can help the Braves continue that by pitching well tonight against a loaded Brewers line-up. Here's the the current state of the NL East.
