Don't know much about mathematics

Whomever was writing captions for the major league baseball website last night needed a quickie re-education in addition and subtraction.

The Phils, Marlins and Nats are off and can't gain ground on Houston.

If, of course, by "can't gain ground" you mean "gain a half-game on Houston" by virtue of the Astros' 7-0 loss to the Pirates.

Today, though, the mlb'ers seem to have gotten their facts straighter.

The Phils, Marlins and Nats all return from their day off closer to the Astros than before. Houston enters its game against the Pirates with a one-game lead over the Phillies, who face the Braves. Florida, at two games back, plays the Mets, while the Giants are in D.C.
