Before opening their National League Division Series against the Giants at AT&T Park on Thursday night, many of the Braves players were wearing T-shirts that read "11 FOR 6." It stands for the 11 wins they need to claim to give Cox, who wears No. 6, a celebratory conclusion to his legendary career.
"It's amazing that you're just 11 wins away from something you've waited for your whole life," Braves outfielder Matt Diaz said before Thursday's game. "It kind of hit home. But you've got to get one [win] first."
