Jean Segura Suicide Squeeze Fail

Situation: Top 4, one out, 2-1 count, runner at 3rd, Milwaukee up 2-0
Pitcher: Bud Norris
Batter: Jean Segura
Runner on 3rd: Rickie Weeks

Leverage index: 1.2
Win probability added: -8.0%

The Brewers just acquired Jean Segura in the Zack Greinke trade. Welcome to Milwaukee, now squeeze!

Weird baserunning by Rickie Weeks. The bunt went straight in the air. Either he should just keep running home and hope the ball hits the ground, or he should try to get back to third. But Weeks just stops and waits for the catch. This gives him no chance to return to third (unlikely anyway), but also if the ball is dropped, he could be thrown out at home.

Dandy Squeeze Score (what’s this?): -5 (-1, fail; -1, pop up; -3, double play)
