Maddon: Escobar 4-2 strikeout should be walk

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon has an interesting suggestion after Yunel Escobar's stuck out a pitch with a 4-2 count: give him credit for a walk.

Escobar struck out in the fifth inning Tuesday night after the umpires had an incorrect count - even after a replay review. On what should have been a walk, umpires ruled the count was 3-2 after consulting with an umpire in New York.

Major League Baseball acknowledged the mistake after the Rays' 7-3 victory over Minnesota, saying "an error was made when replay officials and supervisors mistakenly thought one of the pitches was a foul ball, when it was actually a ball."
