Brandon Phillips avoided a Mike Zunino throw down to second base with an epic swim move

Brandon Phillips has stolen 10 bases this season, and the 10th occurred on Tuesday night when the Braves defeated the Mariners, 4-0. This had a little more flair than your average stolen base, however.
Freddie Freeman was up to bat and took a swing at Marco Gonzales' offering. Phillips took a jump toward second base when Mike Zunino attempted to throw him out. The throw was picture-perfect to Kyle Seager, but so was Phillips' swim move to avoid the tag.

His form was not only superb, but Seager didn't know how to react. Which is fine, neither did we.
And don't worry, it seems both Seager and Phillips were all smiles in the end.
