Dusty gave up an out. He bunted. He wanted the runner on second base. He did so to have the guy in scoring position.
Then, he fails to use a fast pinch runner. He leaves the slow guy, Rolen, in. On the single the guy can't score.
Why bunt? Let Mesoraco try to hit a home run. If you're not going to try and score on the single, why use Valdez and give up an out? You must pinch run and try and score there.
