Pat Burrell‘s three-run bomb in the fourth inning that put the Giants up for good could easily be the Home Run of the Day. So could Alex Rodriguez‘s home run, which gave him 100+ RBIs and 30+ home runs for the 13th straight year. But I’m going with Brooks Conrad because his three-run, third-inning bomb gave the Braves the lead for good and helped them keep in the race with the Padres and Giants. I don’t know who’s going to make it out of the NL as the Wild Card, but a three-team race makes things much more exciting.
