Ricky Nolasco Safety Squeeze

Game: Miami at Milwaukee, September 3 (box, 7-3 Marlins win)
Situation: Bottom 4, one out, 0-1 count, runners at 1st/3rd, game tied 2-2
Pitcher: Mike Fiers
Batter: Ricky Nolasco
Runner on 3rd: Rob Brantly

Leverage index: 2.4
Win probability added: +8.6%

If Fiers fields the bunt cleanly, he probably nails Brantly at the plate. He might have had enough time to field it traditionally and underhand flip it to the plate instead of going for the stylish glove flip.

Dandy Squeeze Score (what’s this?): +3 (+1, success; +1, tie game; +1, batter reaches safely)
