Educate me (again), please.

So tday in the 2nd inning, Hart is on 1st, Hardy on 2nd, nobody out, and Suppan at the plate.  Suppan starts out the at bat positioning himself to bunt, but when Hart and Hardy advance on a wild pitch, he swings away, eventually striking out.

Watching at home, I started muttering "squeeze" to myself the minute Hart ended up at 3rd.  It seemed to me the most likely way to score Hart in this at bat, particularly since (if I'm not mistaken) Suppan is one of our better bunting pitchers.  Suppan had less than two strikes on him at the time (I believe the count was either 1-0 or 1-1).  Aside from the fact that the Mets might have still been looking for the bunt, isn't it more likely that Suppan gets the run home on a safety squeeze call than it is a fly ball or a ground out to the right side?

If someone can point out what I'm missing, I'd appreciate it.  It's been bugging me for an hour already.
