Chipper Jones; ATL's All-time HR Leader

LOS ANGELES (TICKER) -- Two innings after tying the Atlanta Braves' home run record, Chipper Jones eclipsed it with a solo blast off Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Chin-hui Tsao in the eighth inning Thursday.

With the blast, which followed a sixth-inning shot off Eric Stults, Jones moved past Dale Murphy on Atlanta's all-time list with 372 homers. Hank Aaron, who played for the Braves in both Milwaukee and Atlanta, holds the franchise mark of 733 homers. Thirdbaseman Eddie Matthews also hit over 400 homeruns with the Braves' franchise, but most of those with the Milwaukee Braves.

Murphy hit 371 homers for Atlanta over 14 seasons from 1976-90.
