Angels’ Joe Maddon orders Corey Seager intentionally walked with bases loaded –

In the fourth inning of Friday night’s game between the Los Angeles Angels and host Texas Rangers, an eventual 9-6 win for the Angels, Halos manager Joe Maddon dialed up a tactical decision not often glimpsed – the bases-loaded intentional walk. Rather than face Texas shortstop Corey Seager, who came into this game with a slash line of .308/.381/.543 since the start of the 2020 season and had the platoon advantage, Maddon ordered him walked by reliever Austin Warren even though the bases were juiced. That forced home Charlie Culberson and gave the Rangers a 4-2 lead. Here’s a look:  Let’s get wacky on a Friday night! We got an intentional walk with the bases loaded!!!
