This Just In  

Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann said following the team's Game 5 NLDS loss to the Cardinals that he's retiring. "This is it for me," he told reporters in the locker room, saying he made the decision about a month and a half ago. "I'm gonna go home, be a dad, and play with those kids." A seven-time All-Star and six-time Silver Slugger, McCann hit .249 with 12 homers and 45 RBIs in 85 games this season.
