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.”

Royals trade Jarrod Dyson to Mariners for Nathan Karns

That’s what speed….did.

Kansas City got the starting rotation help is so desperately needed.

The Mariners got the speed they sought on the base paths.

“As so often times is the case, once teams know there is a mutual interest in a player — in their case Jarrod, in our case Nate — we just stayed in touch and the timing was right,” Royals general manager Dayton Moore said. “The deal was obviously attractive for us.”...

Dyson, a former 50th-round draft pick, became a fan favorite in Kansas City thanks primarily to his speed on the bases. He hit .278 while stealing 30 bases a year ago.

“We’ve had many conversations about Dyson specifically,” Dipoto said, “and what a good fit he was for our team. He’s an elite-level defender. He’s dynamic on the bases, a fearless base stealer. And the combination of Jarrod Dyson, Leonys Martin and Jean Segura hitting somewhere between the bottom and top of your lineup really creates a three-player dynamic on the bases for us that is probably different than the Mariners have had in a long time and perhaps most different than most teams in our league.”
