Having given up a leadoff triple, Justin Steele might’ve thought he was about to give up a run in the first inning. It’s hard to get out of a runner on third base, nobody out.
But Steele is frequently awesome, so he got a strikeout and a pop out from the next two batters to get close to getting out of it. That’s when it looked like Christian Walker had come through with a two-out, RBI single … but Seiya Suzuki said nope:

I think that ankle is feeling better! Love to see Suzuki, who also hit a 400-foot double in the first, back out on the field.
