Collin Cowgill tries for a bunt, kicks the ball instead

Collin Cowgill tries for bunt, kicks ball instead

Listen, we're all sad that the USA is out of the World Cup. Thrilling and bittersweet, the USMNT's run brought us together as one nation shouting Tim Howard's name at the top of our collective lungs. But it's over, and nothing can bring back that feeling, not even Collin Cowgill pretending he's Clint Dempsey.

During Thursday night's game against the Astros, the Angels outfielder down a bunt and immediately kicked it, presumably too caught up in imagining himself running past the midfield line to remember that this is baseball, and batter inference on a bunt gets you called out.
