"He's a pretty good hitter. He decided to bunt. That kind of took everybody by surprise. That being the case, he didn't bunt it where he wanted to bunt the ball. If he had to do it over, I'm sure he'd swing the bat."

Livo, Completely Mystifying.
After a bad first, the big guy retires 18 of 19 and goes the distance for a complete game loss. Also gets a hit, walks, scores a run, bunts into a fourth inning-ending 1-2-3 double play with bases loaded.
Once again, the Nats can't make or catch a break.
