The Braves just took care of the Phillies 9-3, to improve their record to 29-22, and more importantly Atlanta is now in sole possession of first place, .5 up on Philadelphia.
Troy Glaus has been crazy good in May, and Chipper is finally starting to come around. This team seems like they want to do something special. When was the last time the Braves were in first place this deep in the season? It seems like ages ago.
Quick Edit. Just read this on ESPN:
Improving to 16-4 since May 10, the Braves have made up 7 1/2 games in the NL East since May 17, when they were in last place. Atlanta hasn’t held first place in the NL East this late in a season since they won the last of 14 straight division titles in 2005.
The run has been impressive, but it is amazing that it has been this long since the Braves were on top in the NL East!
