Did Girardi just micromanage his way out of a win?

New, comments

I say yes. A single scores a run either way, and although I understand having a runner at third allows a wild pitch or balk to bring the tying run home, I'd rather keep the out and let Cervelli swing.

Edit: According to Fangraphs, Cervelli's sac bunt actually reduced the Yankees chances of winning.

Sac bunting is stupid and a waste of an out, but it's especially bad when you make an above average hitter do it.
