Braves Moment: Chipper’s Walk Off. 5/28/11
Jones: It’s always good to come through in the last at-bat. But the two guys at the top set the table there in the last inning, putting good at-bats together. And one finally fell in, so it was nice to see on what was just a frustrating night after we jumped out to the big lead, give it up, fall behind, then get back tied. I thought we deserved to win tonight.
Jones: [On trying to make Brian think he would bunt] I would have never bunted, I just wanted to make Mac think about it by asking who was hitting behind him. He told me the pitcher, so I was like, OK. [Facial expression which said, well, nevermind the joke.]
McCann: He’s clutch. He’s got such a good idea what he wants to do at the plate. He’s one of the last guys I’d want to face with the game on the line. He asked me who was hitting behind me. I said, does it matter? You need to go out and end this – now. You want him up in that situation.
