Nationals-Braves Preview

(AP) -- The Washington Nationals have been in sole possession of first place since July 21 and have taken control of the NL East in September, largely due to the Atlanta Braves' slide that is threatening to drop them out of the playoff race completely.

Washington can clinch its second division title in three years by winning in Atlanta on Tuesday night, but starter Aaron Harang seems to be the perfect person to help the Braves delay that celebration for at least another day.

The Nationals (86-63) have gained 5 1/2 games on Atlanta this month, bringing their magic number to two with Monday's 4-2 victory - their seventh in nine games.
