Braves Chip away at Cubs' lead
It was only a matter of time before Chipper Jones and the Braves offense finally displayed some of the firepower that enabled them to enter this postseason with so much hope.

Eric Karros hit a pair of solo homers and survived a freak collision during Game 4, which ended with Sammy Sosa's drive to center falling just a few feet short of completing a game-tying rally against Braves closer John Smoltz. Now, Sunday will consist of a trip to Atlanta and a decisive Game 5 for the Cubs, who have not won a postseason series since 1908.  Full story >
