Earlier, I posted the updated American League standings for Monday. Below you’ll find the National League side of things. All standings are accurate according to the official MLB website. You’ll see the team listed followed by their record, win percentage, and number of games back in their division. Don’t forget you can also check out the MLB Examiner on Facebook for additional information.
- Washington (61-40, .604, 0 GB)
- Atlanta (57-44, .564, 4 GB)
- NY Mets (49-53, .480, 12½ GB)
- Miami (47-54, .465, 14 GB)
- Philadelphia (45-57, .441, 16½ GB)
The Atlanta Braves been surging as of late, winning five straight games. They’re giving Bryce Harper and the Nationals quite a scare, even though the Nats are 8-2 over their last 10 games. Unfortunately for Phillies fans, this is a team that looks to miss the playoffs for first time in quite awhile.
- Cincinnati (61-40, .604, 0 GB)
- Pittsburgh, (58-43, .574, 3 GB)
- St. Louis (54-38, .529, 7½ GB)
- Milwaukee (45-56, .446, 16 GB)
- Chi Cubs (42-58, .420, 18½ GB)
- Houston (35-68, .340, 27 GB)
It doesn’t look like anybody can stop the Reds right now, as they’ve won 10 straight games and are slowly increasing their lead in the NL Central. At the bottom of the ladder are the Houston Astros, who just snapped a 12-game skid and are on the verge of back-to-back 100 loss seasons.
- San Francisco (55-46, .545, 0 GB)
- LA Dodgers (54-47, .544, 0 GB)
- Arizona (51-51, .500, 4½ GB)
- San Diego (43-60, .417, 13 GB)
- Colorado (37-63, .370, 17½ GB)
The Giants and Dodgers look like they’re going to set off a divisional earthquake at the end of the year. The Giants have lost four straight, allowing the Dodgers to gain some important ground in the NL West. The Diamondbacks aren’t out of the picture just yet, although they need to start picking things up soon.
