After four straight losses, Braves face Giants in crucial game

Sole possession of first place in the National League East will be at stake Sunday afternoon when the Atlanta Braves attempt to avoid a sweep by the host San Francisco Giants in their three-game series.

The Braves (76-70), who led the East by 4 1/2 games just five days ago, saw their advantage narrowed to one game when they were beaten 2-0 by the Giants on Saturday night after the second-place Philadelphia Phillies (76-72) had defeated the New York Mets 5-3.

A fifth straight Braves loss in the afternoon coupled with a fifth consecutive Phillies win at night over the Mets on Sunday would leave the teams in a virtual tie, separated by just percentage points, atop the East.
