How do you top a wild walk-off home run?
This game is still fresh in Braves fans' minds.
The Braves came into the game looking to avoid a sweep against the Phillies and got off to a rough start. The Phillies put up a five-spot in the first inning and held a 7-3 lead into the bottom of the ninth.
The Braves managed to rally and cut the lead to 7-5 with two outs.
Chipper stepped to the plate with two runners on to face Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon.
On a 1-1 count, Papelbon threw a fastball that Chipper did not miss. The ball disappeared into the right-center bleachers to shock the Phillies and give the Braves an improbable 8-7 win.
It's an understatement to call this hit clutch. The Braves were coming off a few losses and appeared headed to another. Needing to find some positive mojo and avoid another September collapse was a must.
Like so many times this season, Chipper delivered.
Will there be more this season? I don't think anyone would be surprised.
But for now, those are the most memorable moments of Chipper's final season.
