Brian McCann had one of the worst games of his career in the Atlanta Braves' 4-3 National League Division series game four loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers that knocked them out the playoffs, and the culprit may be that he was using one of Dan Uggla's bat. If you don't believe it, check out the embedded picture below.


The knob of the bat is clearly emblazoned with a "26," which is Uggla's number. It would make sense then that McCann went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in what was likely his final game with Atlanta.

McCann went 0-for-13 with six strikeouts in the NLDS, which was an even higher strikeout rate than Uggla's 171 strikeouts in 136 games.
