MLB Standings: Four-Game Winning Streak Moves Braves Into Second Place

The Braves have turned things around since an eight-game losing streak at the end of May.

After falling to fourth place in the NL East, the Braves have won six of seven, including four straight after a sweep of the Marlins. At 32-25, Atlanta sits in second in the division.

The division remains the most-competitive in baseball. The Braves are one game behind first-place Washington, but at 32-23, the Nationals have two games in hand. Behind the Braves are the New York Mets at 32-26, 1/2 of a game behind Atlanta. The Marlins dropped to fourth place at 31-26, but are just a game behind the Braves. The Phillies are in fifth place at 28-31, five games behind Atlanta.

MLB heads back into interleague play now, with the Braves hosting Toronto for three games beginning on Friday.
