Winning the National League Division Series in Atlanta

In honor of the 2002 Team Reunion coming up on July 1 we wanted to look back at some of the great moments during the 2002 season.   Fans were excited on September 28th when Barry Bonds hit the 46th ball into McCovey Cove, but everyone erupted when Robb Nen got his 43rd save of the season that gave the Giants the NL Wild Card Championship.  But that was just the beginning. A little over a week later Tim Worrell struck out 3 batters in his 2 innings and Nen nailed down a 3-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves to win the NLCS.
