Whew, a little nervous there.

Let's score another run or two for Chapman.

Ooh, he might have missed the plate. Maybe he just touched it.

I would have called that safe too, I think.

Come on Chapman.

Chappy has been great this year. It’s a hiccup.
It's only his third blown save of the year, the first was April 22 and the second wasn't his fault (Didi booting a game-ending grounder in CLE). So the first save he has actually blown since the third week in April...

Funny, that is exactly where I thought he should put it when they showed the defensive alignment beforehand.

No idea who is pitching next, whether or not NY scores here. Hale, Cessa and Cortes Jr (18 pitches last night) are the only options, maybe German can come back for an inning tonight. :)

So there is some value in bunting, especially in that kind of situation, runners on base, an inexperienced third baseman, and a good hunter.

I was sure Gardner was dead at third there.

Keep scoring, the pitching needs it.

TB gave up 6 in the top of the 9th in a tie game last night, wouldn't mind seeing that again here.
