Nationals, Braves ready for four-game set

If the Washington Nationals hope to run down the Braves in the National League East, this weekend's four-game series at Atlanta's SunTrust Park might be a good time to get started.

The series between the division-leading Braves and the second-place Nationals is only the third time the clubs have met this year. The Braves won two of three when the clubs met most recently, June 21-23, in Washington. The Nationals lead the season series 3-2. The teams still have four series remaining, and they meet seven times in the final month.

The Braves are not making it easy for Washington to make up ground. Atlanta opened the second half by going 4-2 on the road, but the Braves dropped the final two in a three-game series at Milwaukee.
