This is what you get for bunting. With men on first and second in the ninth inning of a tie game in Houston, Brandon Phillips successfully bunted them to second and third. And then he ran inside the baseline and got hit in the dome, ruining everything.

After the dust settled, Phillips was called out and the runners instructed to move back to first and second. The Reds, like just about everyone in baseball, are still in this thing and could have used a swing and a run right then but, you know, it's the ninth inning. Small ball time!

Cincinnati did not score in the inning.
