Mama Margie’s Major Meltdown: Brooks Conrad
Every Thursday Sports Grind Entertainment will present you with the Mama Margie’s Major Meltdown. The recipient of this honor goes to Atlanta Braves second baseman Brooks Conrad three crucial errors doom the Braves chances in the playoffs. The Braves were within one out of taking control of the NL division series this past week, but Conrad made three errors, the last of them on a two-out grounder in the ninth inning that gave the San Francisco Giants a 3-2 victory over Atlanta.
He bobbled a grounder in the first, but that one didn’t hurt. He dropped a popup the next inning, allowing an unearned run to score. Finally, Buster Posey’s hard grounder skidded under Conrad’s glove, bringing home the run that capped San Francisco’s two-run ninth.
He tied a postseason record for errors in a game and became the fourth second baseman to make three.
