ATLANTA — The Atlanta Braves have built a 7 1/2-game lead in the National League East thanks to 42-21 record within the division and a 45-30 overall road record — the best in the league.Now the Braves (82-64) can wrap up the division title by turning SunTrust Park into a real home-field advantage during their final homestand beginning Friday night. Atlanta , just 37-34 in its home ballpark, welcomes Washington and St. Louis for three games each, then Philadelphia for four games before playing the final week of the regular season on the road against the New York Mets and Phillies.Article continues below ...Just a few weeks ago, it looked like the NL East race might go right to the wire. But the Phillies (74-71) fell on hard times and the Nationals (74-73) didn’t get things turned around quite fast enough.“We’ve worked hard to get to this point,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said Wednesday after his team completed a 6-1 road trip by allowing just three total runs in a three-game sweep at San Francisco. “We’ve grinded through things to get to this position. We can look to bigger things now.”The Braves’ magic number for clinching the division title with 16 games to go is 10 versus the second-place Phillies and eight versus Washington, which fell 8 1/2 games behind with a 4-3 loss in 10 innings to the Chicago Cubs on Thursday in a makeup game at home. The Braves are 5-2 at home and 9-7 overall against the Nationals, who will pitch defending two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer in the series opener. He is 17-6 with a 2.31 ERA and leads the major leagues with 271 strikeouts.Fellow right-hander Kevin Gausman will get the start for Atlanta Sean Manaea Jersey , which lost at least 90 games each of the past three seasons before turning things around this season. He is 9-10 with a 3.89 ERA overall but 4-2 with a 2.32 ERA since being acquired by the Braves at the end of July. Scherzer is coming into his fifth start of the season against Atlanta off his second complete game of the season. Gausman will face the Nationals for the first time with the Braves after his shortest outing for his new team.Gausman lasted just 4 2/3 innings and allowed four runs in a loss at Arizona a day before Scherzer struck out 11 in nine innings in a home victory over the Chicago Cubs.“I had plenty in the tank,” Scherzer said after reaching double-figure strikeouts for the 16th time this season.Scherzer is 2-1 with a 1.67 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 27 innings against Atlanta this season, improving to 9-6 with a 3.45 ERA in 21 career games versus the Braves.Gausman is 3-1 with a 4.34 ERA in five career outings against Washington, all while with Baltimore. He allowed four hits and two runs in six innings of a no-decision against the Nationals for the Orioles in June.Braves third baseman Johan Camargo is nursing a slight groin strain, but fill-in Charlie Culberson has flourished against the Nationals this season, batting .350 (14-for-40) with five homers and eight RBIs. Culberson has four hits, including a homer , in 10 at-bats against Scherzer. The Chicago White Sox know that their sub-.500 season rapidly is coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean they will roll over in their home park against their crosstown rivals.The White Sox (61-92) will go for their second straight win against the Cubs (89-64) when the teams meet Saturday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. The White Sox won the series opener 10-4 and have split the first four games in the season series.The Cubs have lost back-to-back games and must regroup in the final week to prevent the Milwaukee Brewers from catching them atop the National League Central standings. Meanwhile, the White Sox have won two in a row and could leapfrog the Detroit Tigers for third place in the American League Central with a strong final week.Article continues below ...Cubs left-hander Jon Lester (16-6, 3.43 ERA) will make his 31st start of the season. The 34-year-old is looking to pick up his 60th win with Chicago and the 176th of his career. The only active pitchers with more career wins are Bartolo Colon (247), CC Sabathia (244), Justin Verlander (204) and Zack Greinke (186).Lester has been terrific in his last six starts, going 4-1 with a 1.73 ERA. He has walked eight and struck out 37 during that span.However Pat Neshek Jersey , back soreness interrupted Lester’s progress. He showed no ill effects in his most recent outing Saturday against the Cincinnati Reds, but the Cubs gave him an extra day of rest heading into this weekend.“It kind of ended up moving to my hip,” Lester said to the Chicago Daily Herald. “Then, we were able to get some mobility back in there and it was fine. Like I said, good drugs and good docs, so we’re all good.”In 16 career starts against the White Sox, Lester is 8-6 with a 4.15 ERA. He faced them once this season , allowing one run and four hits in 5 2/3 innings to collect the victory on May 12. He threw 56 of 92 pitches for strikes.The White Sox will counter with right-hander Lucas Giolito (10-11, 5.77 ERA), who also will make his 31st start. The former first-round pick hit a groove in August with five quality starts in six outings, but he faced adversity his last time out by allowing six runs (four earned) and eight hits in six innings against the Baltimore Orioles.Giolito leads the majors in earned runs allowed (106) and leads the American League in walks (83) this season. But he also has showed great potential with a rising fastball and a hard-snapping breaking ball. He remains part of the team’s rotation plan along with fellow young starters such as Carlos Rodon, Reynaldo Lopez and injured Michael Kopech (Tommy John surgery).In his only career start against the Cubs, Giolito allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings for a 4.76 ERA. He collected the victory.“Pitching up here is not about development; it’s about what you can do now,” Giolito said recently to the Chicago Sun-Times. “You have to produce to earn your spot. I am lucky they allowed me to work through it up here at this level. I wouldn’t have had that chance in other organizations.”The Cubs will play their second straight game without shortstop Addison Russell Rhys Hoskins Jersey , who was placed on administrative paid leave by Major League Baseball as it investigates allegations that he physically and verbally abused his former wife.
