    You didn't misinterpret, but I don't think it's all that odd. That's a good time to try and sneak down a bunt when you have his speed, because you're likely to catch the defense off guard.

    Obispo tonight: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 4 BB, 7 K.

    Pepsicola leads 6-2 in the eighth. Mills and Vidal have homered. Billy doesn't have an SB, but he has a 3B. With two hits, he's up to .303.

    Bunting with two strikes certainly will catch defenses off guard, as it is done so rarely, especially without a runner on base. Is Hamilton considered a great bunter?

    If he was currently on the Reds....he'd be the best bunter.

    Hamilton finishes the weekend still 2 shy of Vince Coleman. Wahoos finish it with a 9-2 victory.

    Well played knock on the current Reds inability to bunt. It is quite horrendous.
