Braves Sweep Cardinals


The Atlanta Braves swept the once hot St. Louis Cardinals 9-2, in a complete-game gem from Javier Vazquez.

The series sweep pumped some energy into a clubhouse that four days ago believed the playoffs were out of reach. They still may be, but the Braves have two series left with the Mets and one with the Phillies.

The Braves need to likely win all but three of their 17 games to have a chance to make the playoffs.
