Who says baseballs don’t have a sense of humor — or a little mean streak?
And Chase Headley's bunt during the Yankees' 5-3 win over the A's at to O.co Coliseum Saturday night was proof of that.
Headley laid down a bunt with two outs in the top of the seventh inning before the ball decided to ride the third-base line almost all the way to the bag. The indecisive little guy went fair and then foul again a few times before it finally rested in fair territory and Headley was credited with a hit.
By my count, the ball rolled foul four separate times while all the baffled A's players could do was wait.

Headley was eventually stranded on first base when Alex Rodriguez struck out. But I think the ball had the last laugh.
