Credit Maybin on the play for a decisive break to the plate and for being a fast guy. The Padres color guy describes this as a “perfect” bunt, but it looks pretty straight to me. I don’t think a slower runner scores on this bunt. I bet Bauer agrees, because he thought there might be a play at home. His peek toward the plate caused the error.

Dandy Squeeze Score (what’s this?): +2 (+1, success; +1, batter reaches base)
