On September 2, 2012, Jones launched his final home run in the majors—a crazy-good, three-run walkoff shot in the ninth inning (off Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon).

Atlanta trailed 5-3 heading into that final frame … but it would rally for five runs to pull off the seemingly implausible victory.

On a downer note, this might have been Atlanta’s final positive memory of the 2012 campaign.

A few weeks later, the Braves would qualify for the wild-card slot. For that single-game playoff, though, they fell to the Cardinals in Turner Field—one of the most controversial defeats in franchise history.
