Not only that but also why give the opposing pitcher a free out? Espinosa may have gotten a hit, walk, etc. Or Bernie could have stolen 2B first and then moved to third on a SAC.

Or BErnadina could've been thrown out or there could've been a double play.

What we do know for sure is that Espinosa and Zimmerman executed.  :worship:

Sorry you're sad - the strategy could have gone either way

Bunting Espinosa makes me sad.

We can calculate the odds of that happening and they're not high enough to make it a good idea to bunt, especially with a guy like Espinosa who makes a huge percentage of his outs in the air.  Whether the play "works" or not, it's dumb.  Espinosa could have hit an HR there and we'd be up 4-2.

9 straight starts without a Big League win for Lyles. Tough but he can win against someone else :lmao:

Storen should be warming up

I wonder how you'd feel about Johnson if he didn't have any orioles connection.

Should be a Storen warning now.
