The Cubs and Rockies played at Coors Field on Aug. 19, 2016. The Cubs were batting in the top of the third with runners on first and second and two outs when Anthony Rizzo singled up the middle. Kyle Hendricks, the runner on second, beat the throw home by a few steps but did not touch the plate. Nor did Rockies’ catcher Nick Hundley make a tag. Plate umpire John Tumpane correctly made no call….
In that situation, sacrificing the out for the run is a good idea.
