Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Kevin Frandsen made it to first base on a bunt with savvy base running, and a fielding snafu by Cincinnati Reds first baseman Miguel Cairo, during Thursday night's MLB game at Citizens Bank Park.
With no outs and Juan Pierre on first base, Frandsen intended to sacrifice himself to bunt Pierre to second. Frandsen bunted the ball towards first base and it was fielded by Cairo. However, as Cairo approached Frandsen to tag him, Cairo decided to take a quick look towards second base, which gave Frandsen the opportunity to sidestep around Cairo's glove and avoid the tag. Cairo tried to throw the ball to first base but dropped the ball in the process.
Reds manager Dusty Baker tried to argue that Frandsen stepped too far out of the first base line as he avoided Cairo's tag, but the umpire let the play stand.
Cairo was given an error on the play, but fortunately for him, the Phillies were not able to score any runs in the inning.
