Vinny Rottino gets credit for sacrifice bunt after ball rolls fair (Video)

Cleveland Indians left fielder Vinny Rottino got credit for a sacrifice bunt after hitting it foul and watching it spin back into fair territory during Thursday night's game in Arlington against the Texas Rangers.

It happened in the top of the eighth inning with an Indians runner on first. Ironically, Rottino was trying to pull his bat back from a high pitch, but the ball hit his bat anyway. The ball initially rolled foul line but had some serious spin and made its way back into fair territory right before the bag at first base.

Rottino had no chance of making it to first base, but the play advanced the runner over to second base, which is exactly what he was trying to do. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.
