MIAMI -- Jack McKeon went out a winner.
McKeon told the Florida Marlins before the game that he was managing them for the last time, then watched his team rally in the ninth inning and beat the playoff-bound Atlanta Braves 7-6 in the 10th Sunday.
``I was happy to win this one, go out on a winning style,'' the 74-year-old McKeon said. McKeon led the Marlins to the 2003 World Series title and a winning record in each of his three seasons as manager.Marlins veteran Jeff Conine said an emotional McKeon made his announcement in the clubhouse, and the players responded with applause and hugs.
