Braves Rally to Win the 2004 Hall of Fame Game Atlanta scored six runs in the top of the ninth inning to rally for a 10-7 victory in the 58th annual Hall of Fame Game at Doubleday Field in Cooperstown, New York on June 14. 2004 Hall of Fame Game MVP Jonathan Schuerholz is interviewed following his 4-for-4 performance. Game MVP Jonathan Schuerholz collected his fourth hit of the game with two outs in the ninth inning to prolong the Braves' chances. Three extra base hits later, the Braves held a three-run advantage after entering the inning trailing by three. "It's unbelievable to play on Doubleday Field," said Schuerholz, who was one of eight Braves players called up from Myrtle Beach (A) of the Carolina League for the game, and the son of Braves' general manager John Schuerholz. "Anytime you can do something like this in front of your father makes it even better." Jose Cappellan, an addition from Greenville (AA), picked up the win in relief with two innings, allowing one hit and striking out two. Bobby Korecky, an added player for the Twins from New Britain (AA), allowed six runs, five earned, in the final frame to take the loss. Andruw Jones homered in the second inning for Atlanta in his only at bat. Paul Byrd, making a rehabilitation start, pitched 6.0 innings, allowing eight hits, six runs (four earned), with two strikeouts. He did not walk a batter. In a pre-game Home Run Derby, Minnesota's Matthew LeCroy captured the title, defeating Atlanta's Johnny Estrada, 7-6. Chipper Jones and Mike Hessman also competed for the Braves, while Michael Restovich and Mike Cuddyer also participated for the Twins.
