The A's just lost on one of the dumbest series of plays by a single player that I've ever seen before.

Just to summarize:

- Alex Bregman barely makes contact with the ball, and it rolls foul...and then comes back fair again.
- The catcher smartly picks up the ball as Bregman hasn't moved yet. That's the last smart play he makes.
- The catcher proceeded to miss tagging a guy that is about a foot in front of him.
- He then bobbles the ball and bounces it off the umpire's chest protector
- He then tries to pick up the ball and drops it, again.
- Now he has to hurry his throw to first to get Bregman running there...and hits him in the helmet, allowing the base runners to advance and eventually score the winning run.

This is the silliest way that Bregman has knocked in the winning run...since earlier in the season.
