11 Years Ago Today... Sid Slid



"The most-thrilling moment in Braves history."

On Oct. 14, 1992, entering the ninth inning of Game 7 of the NLCS , the Braves trailed Pittsburgh, 2-0, With two outs and the score narrowed to 2-1, Fransisco Cabrera, who spent most of the season in the minors, lined a pinch-single to left that scored David Justice with the tying run, then Sid Bream lumbered home from second just in time to beat the throw from Pirates leftfielder Barry Bonds.

It was the first time in post-season history that a team went from losing to winning on the final pitch of the decisive game.

"BRAVES WIN, BRAVES WIN, BRAVES WIN!!!" -- Skip Caray
