That's pretty funny. So what do you all think, Nook did have a nice hit that he hustled into a double and I know what he was thinking there, he was thinking that if the catcher tried to double up Lopez at first and Lopez would beat he could beat the throw back to the plate and the game would be tied. Had that worked it would've been great heads up but it backfired. He never suspected that the catcher knew better than to try to throw out a speedy Lopez at first. The catcher looked shocked to see him so far off from third so essentially he gave them the game there.

Good thought - but poor execution ... just two aggressive with 2 outs when you're trailing by one - at the minimum, you have to be sure you can get back to the bag if he throws there -
