That situation sounds somewhat similar to what is called the rotation play or wheel play in bunt situations. During a bunt situation, usually the first baseman and third baseman cover the bunt while the second baseman will cover first base and the shortstop will cover third base. In the situation you describe it sounds like the shortstop would be the defensive player to cover third base.

It depends on what the meaning behind the bunt is, and what side you are batting from. Also the defensive set can be a contributing factor.

For a sacrifice bunt to move the runner, anywhere but directly to the pitcher and fair should do.
