Braves meet Padres with Phillies showdown looming

The Atlanta Braves are guaranteed to be in first place in the National League East when a three-game showdown begins Tuesday with the second-place Philadelphia Phillies.

They'd like to expand the advantage by making it three straight against the Padres when the teams meet Sunday in the series finale in San Diego.

The Braves have the momentum after scoring a run in the ninth inning against San Diego closer Mark Melancon, then won 10-8 with two runs in the 10th. The victory enabled the Braves to retain their 1 1/2-game lead over Philadelphia in the division. The Braves' magic number is seven games.
