I'll defend Dusty on that play. Homer is pitching well, can't always use the pen early, Homer very capable of pitching the seventh.
But he can't hit. So you bunt.
There was plenty of opportunity by the non-pitchers to knock in Heisey, nobody came through.
On the other hand, Homer looks a bit shaky in the seventh.
