Matt Diaz Here's something you don't hear every day: the Braves' Matt Diaz was embarrassed by his reaction to his two-run, game-tying homer in the ninth inning on Sunday.

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution 's Carroll Rogers :
“Coming around third you see the dugout and you see the bat boy picking up the bat over by the dugout, like wow, did I do that?” Diaz said. “I didn’t know how far. It was ugly. There was a Sammy Sosa hop involved, with a Bret Boone bat flip, with a Paul O’Neill head-down-not-look-at-it but then look at it later.” Rogers noted Diaz hit the homer off his former Royals teammate, Leo Nunez and that Nunez is a big emotion guy and will hopefully understand.
