Braves collapse late vs. D-Backs, Phillies stay alive in NL East race with big comeback win vs. Pirates

Braves: 80-71 Phillies: 79-74 (2.0 GB) Nationals: 64-89 (17.0 GB) Truth be told, neither the Braves nor the Phillies have impressed lately. Atlanta is 10-10 in September while the Phillies are only 11-10. This isn't an NL West-esque battle, where the Dodgers and Giants are pushing each other hard and winning seemingly every day. The NL East is two teams seemingly trying to give away the division, but the other isn't taking it.

Braves’ win streak snapped in 6-4 loss to the Diamondbacks

A five-run seventh was more than the Atlanta Braves could overcome in a 6-4 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday. The last time the Braves saw Madison Bumgarner he held them without a hit over seven innings in the second game of a doubleheader back on April 25. Bumgarner retired the first five hitters he faced Thursday before Travis d’Arnaud singled in the second. He escaped that jam but wasn’t as fortunate in the third as Atlanta’s offense kicked into gear.

Series preview: Dodgers move on to Arizona for three-game series

After a surprisingly tough visit to Colorado, the Dodgers head to Arizona for what should be an easier three-game series against the Diamondbacks. D-backs defense this season has been, in the words of general manager Mike Hazen, "confounding. Arizona has one of the worst defensive runs saved totals in the league, regularly losing games thanks to sloppy plays in the field.

The Daily Chop: Braves lose sweep over Diamondbacks

Even after a promising start, the Braves gave up this final game in the four game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. They lead with three runs after the third inning, with a double from Ozzie Albies and a two-run homer from Austin Riley. They lost their lead in the bottom of the seventh, after Jacob Webb entered the game. He immediately gave up three runs, letting the Diamondbacks take the lead. In the final two innings, the Braves couldn’t catch up, giving up the sweep. They still win the series 3-1.

Tonight, Tony Gonsolin has to Pitch the Game of his Life – No Pressure!

Tonight, the Dodgers face the Diamondbacks and Tony Gonsolin needs to go deep into the game. On the surface, that should not be a problem as the Dodgers have won EXACTLY two times the number of games the Diamondbacks have (49 to 98). The only problem is that this is baseball and anything can happen. Humberto Castellanos might as well be Cy Young. On paper, the Dodgers should win this series 3-0, but I do not think they play the games… on paper!
