Jarrod Dyson breaks up perfect game with bunt – and Justin Verlander isn’t mad

Baseball’s unwritten rules were back in play on Wednesday night when Seattle’s Jarrod Dyson broke up Justin Verlander’s perfect-game bid with a bunt single with one out in the sixth inning.

The inning quickly unraveled for Verlander and the Tigers after that, as the Mariners plated three runs on three more hits and two walks. Here’s the rally-starting bunt:

To his credit, Verlander wasn’t upset.

“It was a perfect bunt,” Verlander said, via MLB.com. “That’s part of his game. I don’t think it was quite too late, given the situation, to bunt, especially being as how that’s a major part of what he does. I really didn’t have any issues with it. It’s not like I got upset about it.”
