How Yankees' Didi Gregorius, Aaron Boone defended head-scratching bunt attempt

LOS ANGELES — Yankees manager Aaron Boone said he'd never tell anyone to do what he watched Didi Gregorius do in a crucial spot, but that he didn't have a problem with it. And then Gregorious doubled down that the risk was worth the potential reward. Ultimately, Gregorius failed when he struck out on a two-strike bunt attempt, putting the Yankees in an even tougher spot in the ninth inning of Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. “I'm a team player,” Gregorius said. “Any way I can, I'm trying to get on. So if they question that, then that's their problem.” Said Boone, “I had no issue with it. I would never tell someone in that spot, but I thought it was a good play.”
