Braves streak of divisional titles comes to an end
by Bob Timmermann
Without even picking up a bat and throwing a pitch today because of a rainout, the Atlanta Braves saw their streak of 14 straight divisional titles, starting in 1991 and running through 2005 (no winners were named in 1994), end tonight. The New York Mets rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the eighth inning at Florida to pull out a 6-4 victory. It was the Mets 89th win of the year. Atlanta cannot win more than 88 games.
The Braves still have a very, very, very long shot at the wild card. They are five games behind the Padres, but they are in seventh place in that race.
