Jones' induction ceremony will take place Friday, June 28 at Atlanta's Marriott Marquis before the Braves' game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - After being showered with cheers all weekend, Chipper Jones got one more standing ovation from a sold-out crowd at Turner Field on Sunday.
At the conclusion of an Atlanta Braves 6-2 victory over the New York Mets, Jones walked off the field to a booming applause for the final time in the regular season. He finished 1-for-2, recording his first hit of the series in the third.
David Ross provided all the necessary offense with a three-run homer for the Braves, who will stay alive for the NL East crown with a Washington Nationals loss to the Cardinals. They are currently in action in St. Louis.
Kris Medlen (10-1) once again dazzled for Atlanta. He tossed six strong innings of three-hit ball, allowed one unearned run and struck out four to notch his ninth win in his last 12 starts. The Braves have won in his last 23 starts overall, breaking the record set 49 years ago by New York Yankees' Whitey Ford.
After Andres Torres drove in a run in the ninth, Craig Kimbrel came in to lock down his 42nd save of the season.
Coming off his first career win, New York starter Jennry Mejia (1-2) was unable to duplicate his last outing. He lasted five innings and surrendered four runs on six hits with two walks. He struck out three in the loss.
