Atlanta's Cardiac Braves

5/20/2010

30-year-old Brooks Conrad hit a pinch-hit grand slam Thursday, finishing off a seven-run ninth inning that gave the Braves a 10-9 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Conrad, a utility player for the Braves, has provided some pop this season. Three of his seven hits have been homers in his first 28 at-bats. Atlanta's win was the biggest ninth-inning comeback since the Cleveland Indians rallied from six runs down against the Tampa Bay Rays on May 25, 2009, according to STATS LLC. The win puts the Braves one game above .500 at 21-20.
