Mark Buehrle and Donovan Solano Safety Squeeze Fail

Game: Cincinnati at Miami, September 15 (box, 6-4 Marlins win)
Situation: Bottom 4, one out, 2-0 count, runners at 1st/3rd, Miami up 3-2
Pitcher: Johnny Cueto
Batter: Mark Buehrle
Runner on 3rd: Donovan Solano

Leverage index: 1.8
Win probability added: -7.0%

Calling this a fail really isn’t fair to the Marlins. The bunt could have been a little less straight, and Solano could have been a little more aggressive, but what you see here is Cueto define being “a gazelle off the mound.”

Dandy Squeeze Score (what’s this?): -1 (-1, fail)
