    Bad baserunning by Dunn there. Perfect bunt by Ellison and for some reason Dunn paused. He scores if not for the pause. Disappointing inning after having 2nd and 3rd and only one out and failing to score.

    Squeeze play, but someone forgot to tell Dunn.

    Anyone think Dunn gets plunked next time up?

    not with two outs. Bunting(for a hit) with runners on 2nd and 3rd with two outs is just plain stupid.

    Harang needs two strikeouts for two consecutive 200+ strikeout seasons. And there is #199.

    With Dusty managing, yes. Bochy, maybe.

    But it worked. It was a perfect bunt. That's not a bad play there because that's about the only way Ellison can get on.

    it is because Dunn should have stayed at 3rd(his initial instinct), it was a hit that couldn't even score one run much less two(swing the damn bat or find another job.)

    Dunn would have scored had he broke for home on contact.

    It was just plain stupid to bunt up the 3rd base line in that situation because it gives the 3rd baseman a much easier play at the plate than going to 1st. If Dunn had broke on contact he would likely would have scored but the 3rd baseman would still have gone to the plate.

    It's too bad Dunn wasn't in little league.

    With too outs, they are taught to run on contact. If his initial instint is to freeze, his intincts are out of wack.

    Bunting for a base hit with a runner on third only and 2 outs may make some sense, but with 2nd and 3rd I don't know.
