I’m ok with no bunt. I’m not ok with a shitty at bat by Renfroe. Swinging at that 2-0 pitch was horribleI guess the theory for why not to bunt is that you need more than one run to win this game and the idea is that while a tie game might make us all feel better, you need to get a second run too and that might have been the best opportunity to get that second run. So, let your hitters try to hit.
I tend to agree with that. Run expectancy with first and second and no out is actually better than run expectancy with second and third and one out.
