Atlanta Braves sweep Philadelphia Phillies, clinch 4th straight NL East title
After an up-and-down season marred by injuries and legal issues but bolstered by a flurry of moves at the trade deadline, the Braves won their 21st division title since moving from Milwaukee to Atlanta in 1966. They'll face their former city in the playoffs when they open the best-of-five National League Division Series at the Central champion Brewers on Oct. 8. The Braves didn't even have a winning record on the year until early August. According to ESPN Stats & Information research, they spent 126 days without a winning record, the fourth-most by a division winner since 1969 and the most since the 1989 Blue Jays.
