The Sporting News : Baseball - Maddux stellar again; Braves nip Marlins in bottom of ninth

Dave Martinez walked and, with the crowd chanting “Ri-co! Ri-co! Ri-co!” Brogna hit the game-winner. He also had an RBI single in the first.

This is not about Rico Petrocelli or Rico Suave. It’s all about Rico Brogna! You can’t stop him, you can only hope to contain him!
