First one of the season, I believe. Anyway, I don’t believe there is an official scorer left in the LEAGUE who has the guts to make a non-sacrifice call. In the bottom of the first inning today, with Felipe Lopez on second, D-Backs CF Chris Young dropped a push bunt up the first-base line, and he was actually a step into his stride toward first when the ball hit his bat (he WAS still in the batter’s box, though). The ball went directly up the 1B line, and Randy Wolf had to make a perfect play to get Young, who is a fast runner and was going at full speed. But Young was out (by a step), and Lopez made it safely to third. So what was the call? Sacrifice, of course. Even though this was clearly NOT A SACRIFICE, because Young was clearly BUNTING FOR A BASE HIT, sacrifice was the call, because sacrifice is ALWAYS the call in that situation. Drives me nuts.
