Video: No More Cox in Atlanta; Giants oust Braves in front of Thousands of Empty Seats


Bobby Cox managed his last game Monday night before nearly 9,000 empty seats at Turner Field. The San Francisco Giants beat the Atlanta Braves, 3-2, to win their NLDS series 3-1. The Giants advance to the NLCS for the first time since 2002 and will face the defending NL Champion Philadelphia Phillies. The Braves played before a standing-room only crowd of 53,000+ on Sunday, but could only draw 44,532 for Game 4 and what would be their beloved manager’s last game. Maybe Atlanta fans have good reason to stay away: the Braves now have lost six straight post-season series, fourth longest in MLB history and they are 0-8 in elimination games at Turner Field. Cox finishes his career with 2,504 regular-season wins, but just one World Series ring in 16 playoff appearances (15 with the Braves and 1 with the Toronto Blue Jays). So, long Bobby and thanks for being a class act.
