Not sure how else a batter-runner is supposed to get to the bag.

Just another idiot too lazy to research the starts

Game 1, 2006 - 5 innings, 6 earned runs, 7  total
Game 5, 2006 - 6 innings, 1 earned run, 3 total
Game 1, 2012 - 4 innings, 5 earned runs, 5 total
Game 2, 2017 - 6 innings, 3 earned runs, 3 total
Game 6, 2017 - 6 innings, 2 earned runs, 2 total

5 games total - 27 innings, 17 earned runs: 5.67 era.

Game 2, 2019 - 6 innings, 4 earned runs, 4 total
Game 6, 2019 - 5 innings, 3 earned runs, 3 total

2 games total - 11 innings, 7 earned runs: 5.73 era.

I dunno, Kid. Looks like Verlander pitched true to form.

I think the decision was wrong, but I guess their argument is that he should have approached it from foul territory.

It's a good thing that the game did not end up hinging on that play.

Or unhinging, in the case of the Nats' manager.

Via the runners lane where the rules provide him safe harbor from an interference call.

Good job by MLB not suspending Dave Martinez

Great job by Coach Chip Hale holding him back - and bad job by the ump who kept coming forward at Brentwood Dave

How could they have pitched to Soto there. Even with Kendrick up next.

It's a good question. I don't think it's got a good answer.
