Exactly. In that scenario, a sac fly is probably no better then the 3rd best outcome. Certainly it beats a strikeout/popout/lineout and of course a double play, but not as good as a base hit or a walk.
Not saying hitting a sac fly is bad, just that it shouldn't be the hitter's goal.
...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
