Unfortunately for him, he did it all the wrong way.
The 30-year-old journeyman committed three errors, including one in the ninth inning that allowed the go-ahead run to score and gave the Giants a 2-1 series edge.
"It's completely embarrassing," said Conrad, who has eight errors in the past seven games. "I feel absolutely terrible right now. I wish I could just dig a hole and go sleep in there."Conrad's misplay of a Buster Posey grounder up the middle came after he dropped a pop-up in shallow right field, allowing the game's first run to score. With his adventuresome day, he became the first player in franchise history to make three errors in a postseason contest.
"It's a whole lot to swallow, but I'll do my best to get over it," Conrad said. "I probably won't for a long time. If ever."So the simple question this morning is this: Where does this woeful performance rank among the other less-than-stellar postseason moments (i.e. Buckner, Branca, Durham)?
