ATLANTA -- While the rest of the baseball world was captivated this summer by the mesmerizing feats of the New York Yankees and the Bunyanesque home run race between Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa, the Atlanta Braves quietly dominated their little corner of the national pastime.Last night in prime time, the Braves showed a nationwide television audience what they're made of -- pitching, timely hitting, and plenty of resilience.Given up for dead, they rallied to beat the Chicago Cubs, 2-1, on Chipper Jones' one-out single in the 10th inning and grabbed a 2-0 lead in their best-of-five National League Division Series.

Most trade deadlines come and go with few deals of significance. But this year. . . . Wow. Lots of intrigue, lots of action.The Prey: Mets pitcher Bret Saberhagen.The Winning Predator: The Colorado Rockies.Why: Rockies owner Jerry McMorris agreed with the assessment of his baseball people that Colorado needed one more solid pitcher to hold off the Dodgers in the NL West. The Rockies ignored the medical report (small rotator cuff tear) and the big money concerns ($4.3 million) that scared off other teams.
