Andrew McCutchen Tries To Score From Second On A Grounder To Short, Doesn't

Andrew McCutchen ended a sixth-inning rally when the Pirates outfielder found himself out by 40 feet to help the Mets retire the side. How’d this happen? By completely ignoring his third-base coach, it seems.

Cutch stood on second when Francisco Cervelli grounded to deep short. The less-than-fleet-footed Cervelli likely would have been out at first anyway, but McCutchen’s decision to round third and head home made the decision easy for shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera.
