The Atlanta Braves trail the Washington Nationals in the NL East Division due to a couple losing streaks this season.

If you include last September's collapse, that is three major losing streaks in the last two seasons.

The Braves went 9-18 that September, which included a five-game losing streak to finish the season. They started right where they left off in 2012 by losing the first four games of the year. Recently, the Braves suffered through an eight-game losing streak before turning it around against the St. Louis Cardinals.

The losing streak cost the Braves a playoff berth in 2011, and the team will have to prevent streaks like those to earn a spot in 2012.

When a team goes through a losing streak, there are generally a combination of factors that go against the team.

It is no different for the Braves, and there are some recurring patterns that show up in these losing streaks.

Here's a look at the reasons why the Braves have been prone to massive slumps.
