Norichika Aoki does what Norichika Aoki does.

Calling this play a suicide squeeze doesn’t begin to do it justice. This play is about six inches away from being a triple play. There are two botched calls by the umpires (play at first, disallowing the second run), which brings both managers out to argue. And for the moment, it put the Brewers at 90% win probability.

Dandy Squeeze Score (what’s this?): +4 (+1, success; +1, suicide; +1, batter reaches safely; +1, bases loaded)
