WASHINGTON -- Braves manager Bobby Cox earned his 2,500th win, getting five effective innings from Derek Lowe (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?playerId=3640) and a three-run homer from Alex Gonzalez (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?playerId=3038) in Atlanta's crucial 5-0 victory over the Washington Nationals (http://espn.go.com/mlb/team/_/name/wsh/washington-nationals) on Saturday.

Reaching this milestone for Bobby Cox must of been special, the final games of the season are winding down and he gets his 2,500th victory. He's had a heck of a career, and has also been tossed more than any manager out there. He went on a strong 13-14 year stint leading the Braves into the post-season. Kudos to Mr. Cox!

Good to see Cox get his 2,500th win before he hangs them up, too bad he couldn't finish out the year with Chipper Jones on the active roster.

I know, I would have liked Chipper Jones to play on the Active Roster as Cox heads his way out of here!
