The Atlanta Braves finally broke out of a 4 game slide this afternoon defeating the St. Louis Cardinals by the score of 7-3. The second place Philadelphia Phillies defeated the New York Mets by the score of 4-0 so the Braves were only able to gain one game in the magic number column. The Braves could possibly clinch the NL East crown this weekend at home since the Philadelphia Phillies will be in town for a 4 game set. Any game the Braves win will drop the magic number down 2 games so winning 3 of 4 guarantees us at least a tie for the NL East crown and a 4 game sweep means we clinch at home in front of our fans. Go Braves!!!!!!!
