Ah, I love it when the universe corrects itself.
At the start of the second inning, Tommy Edman reached base only after strike three was incorrectly called ball four:
Should be strike 3, but it's ball 4. Sigh. pic.twitter.com/S1gBxXfzAk

But he unsuccessfully tried to steal second base shortly thereafter, forgetting that Willson Contreras has a rocket and Javy Baez is an elite tagger.
Don’t forget, Edman is fast … just not fast enough.
You're not that guy, pal, trust me.
