After a game on the 1st April 2018, the Minnesota Twins are making a big deal of the fact that Baltimore Orioles catcher bunted in the 9th inning to get on base when his team was down 7-0. I'm having some difficulty understanding why.
Here is the ESPN article: "Chance Sisco's bunt vs. shift in 9th upsets Twins"
From what I understand, the Orioles were down 7-0. Sisco gets up to bat in the 9th inning, and the Twins shift their defenders toward the right side of the field. Seeing a gap in the defense, he bunted up the third base line and got on base.
Can someone explain to me why this is a problem and why there are numerous articles and tweets about how bent out of shape the Twins are about this? It seems like a sound offensive strategy -- put the ball where the defenders are not. It's what I was coached to do in little league baseball and high school softball, so I'm quite puzzled why this is a "bad" thing to have done.
