Last Play: Y. Molina struck out swinging, T. Greene caught stealing, catcher to second to catcher
Just you're everyday K, 4, 2 DP.
Thinking back through it, it wasn't as odd as I originally thought. Matheny started the runner to remove the DP threat. Makes a lot of sense with Molina up. Beltran goes. Ball is unhittable, but Yadi had to swing. Strike out. Then, Beltran wasn't doing a straight steal, so he was caught half way. Tried to start the rundown to give Greene a chance to get down the line and score before he's tagged.
Greene went home... probably not a great decision, but he was caught in between too. 2b'man runs Beltran half way back to 1st and threw home to nail Green coming down the line.
I don't think there was any way to avoid a DP there after you make the decision to send Beltran on an unhittable pitch. So, it was over any way you want to slice it. Good execution by the Brewers. Bad decision by Matheny, even though it was probably the right decision (to send the runner).
Q: What year is it?
