Bunt = HR

August 19, 2006

I’m watching the Dodgers and Giants on InHD right now.  The Giants are getting shelled – it’s 5-0 with no outs in the top of the 2nd.

It’s so bad that Greg Maddox, a (hall of fame) pitcher, led off the second with a ground rule double.  The guy behind him then laid down a sacrifice bunt.  Which the pitcher fielded, thought of going to third (didn’t) and threw way wide of first.  The or second baseman got the ball from the wall half way down the line and threw to third.  The third baseman missed the ball.  The pitcher eventually got the ball off the wall on the third base line … and threw late to the plate.  Sacrifice bunt turns into a home run.

I’m astonished.  No wonder the only teams the Mariners can beat this year are in the NL.

Heh – Giants pitcher just got yanked.  Box score for B Hennessey tonight.  1+ innings pitched (no outs in 2nd before pulled).  7 runs (3 earned).  1 walk. 1 strike out.

And the carnage continues.  7 hits for the Dodgers so far in the 2nd with no outs.  This is going to be a LONG night for SF.
