Giants Beat Braves, Cox Retires

The San Francisco Giants beat and eliminated the Atlanta Braves from the National League Division Series Monday night—a victory that ended the career of retiring Braves Manager Bobby Cox. The fourth-winningest baseball manager of all time, Cox first managed the Braves from 1978 to 1981, then served as general manager from 1985 to 1990, and managed again from 1990 to 2010. The Braves appeared in 14 consecutive postseasons from 1991 to 2005. “It doesn’t feel like this is the last time I’m putting it on, but it certainly is, and I won’t put it on again,” Cox said after the game. The Giants will go on to play the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League Championship Series.
