Braves poised to clinch NL East against Giants

The Atlanta Braves will have a chance to clinch their second straight National League East championship Friday night when they host the San Francisco Giants in the opener of three-game series at SunTrust Park.

Atlanta (94-60) reduced its magic number to one after beating the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 on Thursday. One Atlanta win or one Washington loss will ensure a division title for the Braves.

San Francisco (74-79) had its three-game winning streak broken by the Boston Red Sox 5-4 on Thursday. The Giants are just 19-26 after a blistering 19-6 July convinced the team brass to hold out hopes for a wild-card berth.
