Thats why I NEVER mess with that dingdang scorebook!

In order for a ground ball to be a sacrifice, it must be bunted. And the official scorer believes the batter was bunting to advance the runner, and not for a base hit. Before you ask, an EXPERIENCED scorer can tell the difference. And so can ANY experienced baseball fan.
