B1:

Bird...ball...called strike...pops out F6 as Bregman and Correa fight over and their gloves crash together.  Got lucky there.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Verlandet striking out Sanchez has some justice to it.

Correa the big bully takes the ball away from the little kid Bregman.

That was going to be the only way they get to Justin.  He is dealing. 

Castro was completely overmatched.

Did Buck just compliment Hicks’ swing on a strike one foul tip?

On that popup, the ball was in Bregman's glove, and Correa knocked it out.

Correa would technically have priority, right?

No.  Third baseman has priority over any popup in the infield.
