Oh, and just for fun, here is the win expectancy chart (thank you to Fangraphs) for yesterday's Reds/Braves game.

A quick note about just how rare the Braves' miraculous 7-run 9th inning comeback yesterday was: Brooks Conrad's 9th inning grand slam marked only the 24th time in MLB history that a player hit a game-winning grand slam with his team down by three (thank you to David Fleitz's site for this data). That makes it almost as rare as a perfect game. Conrad is now the fourth player this century to hit one of these grand slams, joining Brian Giles (2001), Jason Giambi (2002), and Adam Dunn (2006).
