The Braves didn't have to wait until their game ended tonight to clinch their 14th straight division title. The New York Mets took care of business for Atlanta by beating Philadelphia, 3-2.
But even if the Phillies hadn't lost, Atlanta was determined to pick up a victory tonight. In the bottom of the 7th, the Braves now lead the Rockies by a score of 12-3. They've collected 12 hits including two homers from Marcus Giles and a solo shot by Adam Laroche.
We'll be back later with more, but for now...
CONGRATULATIONS ATLANTA! YOUR BRAVES ARE DIVISION CHAMPS AGAIN!!!
