Déjà vu

Whining about the sacrifice bunt is getting boring, but maybe someday Perlozzo will get the message.

Ninth inning.  Scored tied.  Markakis on first, no outs.  Your .300 hitter, Brian Roberts, sacrifice bunts, and moves him to second.  Matos strikes out.  Two outs.  With first base open, they intentionally walk Tejada.  Hernandez strikes out.  Inning over. No runs scored.

OK, that plan didn’t work.

Eleventh inning..  Scored tied.  Markakis on first, no outs.  Your .300 hitter, Brian Roberts, sacrifice bunts, and moves him to second.  Matos strikes out.  Two outs.  With first base open, they intentionally walk Tejada.  Hernandez strikes out.  Inning over.  No runs scored.

Score for the entire game – 3 sacrifice bunts – ZERO runs scored.

Final result – game lost.
