VIDEO: Juan Uribe Scores On Josh Beckett Squeeze Bunt vs Tigers

One night after runs were at a premium for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Detroit Tigers, both teams scored in the first and again in the second inning of Tuesday’s game. With the game tied at 2-2, Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe led off the bottom of the third with a single and advanced to second on a passed ball. Tim Federowicz then moved Uribe to third, which set the stage for one of the more rare plays in baseball.

Josh Beckett stepped in, working a full count as he looked to help himself with an RBI in his first start of the regular season. Rolling the dice, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly called a suicide-squeeze play and Beckett laid down a perfect bunt that allowed Uribe to score.

The lead would be short-lived however, as Becket subsequently gave up a three-run home run to Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos the following inning.
