PITTSBURGH — Atlanta's hopes of winning the National League East ended with a loss that clinched the division title for the Nationals. The Braves, who needed to sweep the Pirates and have first-place Washington lose three games to the Phillies to tie for the division lead, will instead be the top wild-card team when the postseason begins Thursday. Starling Marte homered and scored twice to lead Pittsburgh.
