Occam's Disposable Razor: Historically bad base running, dude tagging from 2nd...


The guy on 3rd did not do the best either.  That ball was not hit very deep.

This. Runners should've stayed put.

It's especially bad since Louisville is trailing 5-0. With runners on second and third, they have a chance to get back into it with a big inning, but they need some more hits. They're risking that for a sac fly to make it 5-1? That barely moves the win-expectancy needle. This is no time for small ball.

Made even worse by that metal bat

Well...it STILL has happened only once in MLB history.

That was miserable base running. WTF was the 3B. Patch smoking?

FFS. 3B coach.

Right?  He almost intercepted the pass to home plate also

Agree with everybody who says they should have both stayed put.  That whole mess was on the third base coach.  Why the hell would you have the runner tag on a fly that barely left the infield?  (especially down 5 runs!?)  As to the runner on second... I don't know about anybody else but I was taught that if the runner on third tags, you tag too.  Then you take third on the throw to the plate.  Problem was, the ball wasn't hit deep enough so as ANYBODY should have been tagging.

Historically bad coaching.  The base runners should have gotten the green light from the third base coach.

What does 7-2-6 signify? I'm guessing where the outs occurred, but what is the numbering system here?

For the same reason you note a strikeout with a "K" on a score sheet.

What bases are out of order?

First, second, and third are 3,4,5.

I love how the game of baseball is scored. So I really enjoy anomalies like this. Only happened one time in MLB!?! I bet it happens every game in little league.

The guy who said it was shiatty base running is right. That was horrible!

Yes I am aware of that and if I wasn't it is quite clear in the image. I was wondering why a person asked about the bases being out of order.

Shortstop is 6 instead of 5 because he essentially play short outfield.

He was talking about the shortstop. Why it goes 3-4-6-5

Yep.  He was called a shortstop because his original job was to relay throws from the outfield to the infield.

It's not so much where the outs occurred, but what field player made the out.  Sometimes outs happen at a base, sometimes in the running path, and the first one isn't always a pop up out.  Outfielders have also come in to be part of tagging a runner.  The last part isn't as likely, but has occurred.

You also have quirks like a 9-2-7-2 double play. Ball hit to the right fielder, throws a runner out at the plate (catcher breaks his leg in the collision), catcher (with a broken leg) tries to throw the other runner out at third but misses and it goes to the left fielder, who then throws the runner out at home trying to advance on the bad throw (and the catcher lying there with a broken leg).

Thinking about it, I should've said it's about the players that handled the ball during the play.  A single out often involves two players, because it starts with the player who caught the ball, then threw to the player at the base.

I can kinda forgive that guy, he took off when the throw was obviously going home.The guy trying to tag from 3rd though, the coach should have tackled him.


Except you can see him standing about 30 feet off second right before the ball is caught. So he had to run back to second before tagging up. If he hazd been tagging all the way, he easily makes it to third when the throw goes home.

I don't get current ball players doing that.  I grew up, clinging to the bag during a pop up, then taking off.  I get they're thinking the runner will get more bases if the ball is dropped, but if not, this happens.  They're killing the pop up sacrifice.  That's the defense's job to kill scoring opportunities, not do it to themselves.

Except the runner on second was right. This shouldn't have happened. The runner on third stays put and the runner on second trots back to the base safely.

If something goes wrong in the outfield he is assured of third and has a shot at home.
