I don't care if you're playing in Yellowstone National Park, it was a moronic decision to send the runners. Even if Hanigan still K's you still have the tieing run up with Stubbs, (insert pinch hitter here) and the hottest hitter in the series Brandon Phillips due up. I'll take my chances with that over that terrible call to try and move non-tieing/leading run up 90 ft.
