This round has served as the stage for some of the most thrilling moments in postseason history. How about Sid Bream scoring on a close play to end Game 7 of the NLCS and help the Braves beat the Pirates? Or Dave Henderson's two-out, two strike, ninth-inning home run to beat California -- and send Boston to the World Series -- in 1986? Or Robin Ventura's "grand-slam" single against the Braves in 1999?
