The Yankees turned a 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 triple play
The Yankees just turned a rather unique triple play against the Orioles.
Let's set the stage first: The Yankees and Orioles were deadlocked at two until the bottom of the seventh, when Adam Jones dropped a fly ball with two outs and the bases loaded, leading to a 5-2 lead for New York. In the next half-inning, Baltimore had first and second with no outs against CC Sabathia. Then this happened:
That's your basic 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 triple play. Not going to see that very often.
The Yankees last turned a triple play way back in ... April of 2010. Sabathia was on the mound for that one as well. The last time they turned a triple play at home was in June 1968.
