    Matt Olson knew the Atlanta Braves were too talented to stay in a season-long slump.

    That's why no one panicked when the New York Mets' division lead swelled to double digits in May. Now the Braves are on the cusp of another NL East title.

    ''It's a clubhouse full of guys who want to win,'' Olson said. ''That's all it's been since the moment I walked in. That's No. 1 on the program.''

    Dansby Swanson and Olson homered for the third straight game, Travis d'Arnaud hit a go-ahead two-run single in the third inning, and Braves beat New York 5-3 on Sunday night, completing a three-game sweep of their NL East rival and taking a two-game lead in the division with three games to play.
