Bonifacio draws balk
Another example of how Emilio Bonifacio hurts a defense? Balks.
When Bonifacio singled to open the sixth inning off New York’s Sean Green, he put the Mets on guard. Green threw over a couple of times to first baseman Carlos Delgado. Without even attempting a steal, Green balked, which automatically advanced Boni to second.
Bonifacio went to third on Hanley Ramirez’s infield single. Jorge Cantu singled Boni home. On the pitch Cantu hit to left field, Bonifacio faked as if he was going to race home.
