Angels intentionally walk Corey Seager with bases loaded

Just one week into the Major League Baseball season, there has been plenty of excitement after an offseason mired by the lockout.

Friday night’s game between the Angels and the Rangers provided a strategic move that has happened just a handful of times in the sport’s history.

With the Angels trailing the Rangers 3–2 in the fourth inning, Los Angeles manager Joe Maddon told his pitcher Austin Warren to intentionally walk Rangers shortstop Corey Seager with the bases loaded, surrendering a free run that put his team down 4–2.
