The Atlanta Braves climaxed their 2007 home season with a 3-1 series against the Milwaukee Brewers over the weekend.
The lopsided series didn’t cinch a playoff berth for the Braves, but didn’t kill hopes either. They start a six-game road series in Philadelphia Tuesday. Besides the Phillies, the Braves complete the season against Houston Friday-Sunday.
After the Brewers series ended Sunday, Turner Field announced more than 2.7 million fans had been drawn to home games during the 2007 season.
The accompanying pictures were taken at Saturday’s 4-1 win, which lasted 11 innings.
