National League Review

September 17, 2012

There likely are no divisional races in the National League. Only one wild card berth appears up for grabs as the season heads into the final two plus weeks.

Though they were swept in a weekend series vs the 2nd place Atlanta Braves, the Washington Nationals still have a five and a half game lead in the N.L. East. The Nationals swept the New York Mets before being swept by the Braves. All six games were on the road.

The Cincinnati Reds have run away with the N.L. Central building up an eleven game lead over the defending World Champion, St. Louis Cardinals.

The San Francisco Giants have a seven and a half game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers and barring the unforeseen, will finish in first place for the 24th time which ties them with the Dodgers for the most such finishes in the National League.

While the Braves have a huge 7 game lead for the home wild card spot over the Cardinals, the Cardinals, in turn have just a one game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers for playoff qualification.
