Is It Good Baseball? Sure!
By John Clarence
Sports Commentator

It's the bottom of the 8th inning. The visiting pitcher has a perfect game going. The batter pulls off the ugliest bunt in years. A bloop bunt that goes about 20 feet in the air and lands just shy of the infield dirt in front of the charging second baseman who can't make the play.

Good-bye perfect game. Good-bye no hitter.

Was it good baseball? Or was it chicken "dung"!

More information please
Recently at the "Q" in San Diego, the score was 2-0 in favor of the man pitching the perfect game. The two teams were tied for first place about a third of the way through the season. Arizona Diamondbacks coach Bob Brenley called it chicken "dung" (my translation). I call it good baseball. The batter was Ben Davis of the San Diego Padres. The pitcher: Curt Schilling. Schilling says he can't get pissed about it.

Ben says his bunt allowed the tying run to come to the plate. Schilling walked that guy and later gave up two more hits anyway. But Bob Brenley still says Davis' bunt was uncalled for. "Ben Davis is a young player and has a lot to learn about how this game is played," Brenley said. There's an unwritten rule in baseball that if a pitcher has a no-hitter in or beyond the sixth inning hitters are supposed to "earn" their way on base with a hit … not by laying down a cheap bunt.

Ben Davis was more interested in winning a game than following some silly unwritten rule of baseball. Ben Davis has backbone.

If the Padres are down 6-0 or if they're 10 games out of first place, I can understand Brenley's whining. But given the situation, Brenley needs to think twice. If roles were reversed he'd be defending that bunt to the end of the season.
