Because they don't want to give a stolen base in any situation in which the stolen base does not increase your chance of winning one iota, and the defence understands it.
If it's the tying run, they don't call "fielder's indifference".
The 2nd Atlanta run was meaningless. The last Atlanta baserunner was meaningless.
