1993 Tournament, Braves, Dodgers, OOTP
Well I would like to provide screen caps with stats and a brief summary but my newness to this software shown through as I deleted the series. I had a couple of series I was testing with and I was removing the clutter, bad decision.   The Braves did win the game behind Greg Maddux and a big homer by Ron Gant.   The Braves will move on to face the winner of the 9 Rangers and 8 Cardinals in Elite 8 action.   Next series is the #2 seed SanFrancisco Giants and Barry Bonds vs the #15 seed Seattle Mariners and Ken Griffey Jr.
