Betancourt bunting on his own

Manager John McLaren said shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt’s attempt at a two-strike bunt was not signalled for. Betancourt did that on his own in an effort to get the bunt down.
“He wanted just to show that he could do it,” McLaren said. “I don’t know what to say. I appreciate him wanting to get the bunt down and everything, but we didn’t want him bunting then, 3-2. We wanted him swinging the bat.”
Betancourt fouled the pitch off on the bunt, and it was caught by the catcher. There were two runners aboard with no one out at that point.
“He’s got such heart and everything he does, he means it to do well,” McLaren said. “There’s nobody that feels worse than him. He was doing this from a team standpoint. This was not selfish at all.”
