It gets lonely out there with all that space. Then again, Nimmo’s from Wyoming so he used to be surrounded by nothing.

Update: Nimmo chopped a ball to third in his second at-bat. The throw was short hopped to the first baseman and popped out of his glove, allowing Nimmo to be safe at first. He advanced to second on a base hit.
