Answer: Mark Wohlers

Former Braves closer Mark Wohlers had over 100 saves with the Braves from 1991-1999. During the 1995 World Series year, Wohlers was dominant; posting a 2.09 ERA, 1.88 FIP, and 90 Ks in 64.2 innings. The following year he would earn his lone All-Star selection thanks to his 3.03 ERA, 100 Ks, and 39 saves.

A career 3.97 pitcher, Wohlers will always be remembered in Braves country as the man who followed Glavine's eight dominant innings in game six of the 1995 World Series, and shut the door down on the first championship for the Braves since moving to Atlanta.
