Game: Houston at Pittsburgh, July 4 (box, 6-4 Pirates win)
Situation: Top 2, one out, 0-0 count, runners at 1st/3rd, Houston up 2-0
Pitcher: Kevin Correia
Batter: Dallas Keuchel
Runner on 3rd: J.D. Martinez
Leverage index: 1.5
Win probability added: -5.6%
Bad bunt: Strong and straight back to the pitcher.
Sub-optimal baserunning: It’s not fair to place too much blame on Martinez. The bunt hit the ground, and he broke for the plate. It just turned out that the pitcher had the ball immediately. With the top of the order coming up, maybe Martinez should have been more cautious breaking for the plate.
Dandy Squeeze Score (what’s this?): -1 (-1, fail)
