(CBS) – The Milwaukee Brewers have turned a rare triple play in the second inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night in Milwaukee.
With Matt Kemp on second base and Juan Rivera on first, James Loney’s grounder up the middle was grabbed by Josh Wilson who easily forced Rivera on a flip to Yuniesky Betancourt , and the throw to first got Loney — Prince Fielder then turned and fired a strike to George Kottaras at home who tagged out Kemp trying to score — creating a 4-6-3-2 triple play.
It was the sixth triple play in Brewers history, and the first 4-6-3-2 variety since 1972.
