Open thread, 9/23 NL East champs vs. Larry Sorensens

Not much to say about the ’13 Bravos tonight, so let’s take a look at this day in Braves history:

1987 In a 5-4 victory over the Astros, Albert Hall becomes the first Braves’ player to hit for the cycle since 1910.
1996 Atlanta beats the Expos, 8-2 to clinch the National League East. The Braves become the first National League team to take five straight division titles.
2009 After signing him to a one-year contract extension for 2010, the Braves announce Bobby Cox will retire as the manager of the Braves after next season. The 68-year old skipper has led the team to a string of 14 consecutive postseason appearances and a world championship during his 24-year tenure in Atlanta.

The line-up:

1. Heyward RF 2. Schafer CF 3. J Upton LF 4. C. Johnson 3B 5. Gattis C 6. Simmons SS 7 Terdoslavich 1B 8 Janish 2B 9 Minor P
