"Another" because Soler tried to score from 3rd in the top of the 1st in

Game 1 on a grounder to the 1st baseman, who tagged 1st & then nailed Soler at home. The commentators are saying that Soler's attempt to score can perhaps be justified, but Duvall's attempt to reach 2nd cannot.

I've been watching the Braves a lot this season and haven't seen a mistake like the one Duvall made. My only complaint this season about the Braves on the base paths has been that Washington, the Braves' 3rd base coach, has sent several runners when he had no business doing so. But I have to admit that Washington was his usual aggressive self in Game 2 when he sent Soler and Freeman and it worked out both times.
