Braves aim for sweep of Nats to keep pressure on Mets

The Atlanta Braves will shoot for a three-game sweep of the host Washington Nationals on Wednesday, looking to maintain their momentum heading into a weekend series with the visiting New York Mets.

Winner of four straight, Atlanta (97-58) moved into a first-place tie with New York (97-58) atop the NL East when the Mets dropped a 6-4 decision to the Miami Marlins on Tuesday. The Braves watched the conclusion of the Mets' game from their clubhouse.

"The hope is to win (Wednesday) and then the hope is to have a good series against New York this weekend," Atlanta right fielder Ronald Acuna Jr. said through an interpreter. "The division is on the line."
