Whether it was Lonnie Smith not scoring on Terry Pendleton's double or Leyritz's homer or the Astros come back in 2005... there have been many innings where if the breaks went slightly differently, Bobby Cox might have more than one World Series ring.
Well throw tonight's top of the 9th on the pile. If the Braves get that last out, they have the Giants on the ropes and the NLCS would be in their sites.
Now? They are staring at elimination and a bittersweet ending for Bobby Cox's career.
Read those inning recaps.
I'm not even a Braves fan and it breaks my heart. Should give Brooks Conrad some relief to know he is in good company.
