bottom of the 8th, tie game, runner on 2nd, no out. before Arod bunt error, reuters bottom of the 8th inning v Twins, 5/26/10, reuters break a 2-2 tie with one out and men on first and third in the eighth inning. With lefty Andy Pettitte on the mound, the Yankees played Mauer to come back up the middle, cheating shortstop Derek Jeter toward second.

Mauer was looking for a fly ball to bring Drew Butera in from third on at least a sacrifice fly. Instead, he grounded sharply up the middle. Jeter barely had to move to start an inning-ending double play. Had the Yankees been playing straight, Mauer might have had the winning RBI." via btf
