That play was good clean baseball. The runner did what he was supposed to do. Ensure his team got the run. He isn't supposed to play with the other teams well being in mind as he enters the batters box to score a run with the throw coming into home plate.
Does anybody remember when Giambi slid into home avoiding contact, and Jeeter made that fabulous relay to the catcher, allowing him to tag the runner out? If the runner takes the catcher out, he doesn't have a chance to tag him out.
