2012 MLB Standings: Braves Lose Ground In NL East

The Atlanta Braves are 8.5 games behind Washington in the NL East.


The Atlanta Braves head into a series against first-place Washington this weekend on a three-game losing streak. The Braves fell further behind the Nationals in the NL East thanks to that losing streak, and with fewer than 20 games remaining in the regular season, their odds of a division title are slight.
