The Braves won the National League pennant five times in the 1990s, the only five times they have won it since moving to Atlanta. The pennant-clinching games  will be re-aired across five consecutive days on Fox Sports Southeast.

The showings will begin at 3 p.m. Sunday with John Smoltz pitching a shutout in the Braves’ 4-0 win over Pittsburgh in Game 7 of the 1991 NL Championship Series. That game also will be shown at 9 p.m. Sunday.

On Monday, one of the most celebrated games in Braves history – the 3-2 win over Pittsburgh in Game 7 of the 1992 NLCS – will air at 7 p.m. That’s the dramatic game, of course, in which Sid Bream slid home with the winning run on Francisco Cabrera’s pinch-hit two-run single with two out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

The Braves’ series-sweeping Game 4 win over Cincinnati in the 1995 NLCS, a 6-0 win behind Steve Avery and three relievers, will air at 7 p.m. Tuesday. A 15-0 rout of St. Louis in Game 7 of the 1996 NLCS, featuring the Braves’ six-run first-inning rally capped by Tom Glavine’s bases-loaded triple, will air at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

And finally, the Braves’ series-ending 10-9 walk-off win over the Mets in Game 6 of the 1999 NLCS, decided on a bases-loaded walk to Andruw Jones in the 11th inning, will be shown at 7 p.m. Thursday.
