Here's How You Score On A Bunt With The Bases Empty

Softball's been eliminated from the Olympics (mostly because the U.S. is too good at it) which makes the World Cup Of Softball the sport's premier international event. Last night's 3-0 championship win over Australia continued to prove American dominance in softball, and no play demonstrates it more than Michelle Moultrie's fifth-inning bases-empty bunt that led to the third U.S. run.

You could take the glass-full approach and call this an inside-the-park bunt home run, but we'll be more realistic and call it a rare four-base error. Either way, Moultrie's speed is astounding in a sport not known for its athleticism and it's hard to think of many athletes, male or female, who could round a softball diamond as quickly as she does. Seriously, watch it again, and admire the speed. [ESPN2]
