Bobby Cox will get one more try in October. No tiebreaker needed.
What could've turned into a real tangle of a playoff picture became clear Sunday: Cox and his wild-card Atlanta Braves will face the San Francisco Giants, while the San Diego Padres are finished.
Major League Baseball was looking at the possibility of a three-team, two-day round of games to sort out all the postseason slots -- fun for fans, a scramble for players. Instead, for the first time in four years, the regular season ended on Game No. 162.
The first round in the NL was set when Jonathan Sanchez and the Giants eliminated the Padres 3-0. Philadelphia and Cincinnati will meet in the other division series.
