7. BP Gets the Best of the Giants

This is one of the more interesting plays of the year. With runners on first and third and one out, Phillips pulled an old trickaroo out of the bag. On a softly hit pop-up to him, Phillips let the ball bounce directly in front of him. This enacted chaos on the diamond. Giants’ catcher, Buster Posey, ended up running to 2nd because he thought he had to advance in order to not get forced out, but the joke was on him. This was a very baseball savvy play by Brandon.
