The Chicago White Sox completed with first 9-3-2-6-2-5 triple play in MLB history Saturday against the Texas Rangers.
The Texas Rangers were down by five runs in the top of the seventh inning of Friday’s game against the Chicago White Sox when Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded and no outs.
The stage was set for the Rangers to swing the momentum, but the play was destined for disaster the second the ball left Moreland’s bat.
A play that began as an innocent line drive to White Sox right fielder Adam Eaton ended as a triple play and an embarrassment for the Rangers.
Poor baserunning by the Rangers led to the first ever 9-3-2-6-2-5 triple play ever recorded in MLB history and an amusing viewing experience, too.
