Falling for the Okey Doke

During a game in Cleveland on Monday between the Yankees and the Indians, the Indians’ Jason Kipnis got caught napping.
He’s the runner at first base. The batter pops up to third. But the Yankees play it like it’s a grounder to first.
Kipnis runs to second as Derek Jeter fakes taking the throw, and Kipnis thinks he’s safe.
Until he sees that the third baseman caught the foul ball and is throwing over his head to first base.
By the time Kipnis retreated, the Yankees were already back in their dugout.
Think Kipnis will get some heat for that one? That's an emphatic "oh yeah!"
