It's a long season, and you miss a lot of stuff. Or maybe you forget a lot of stuff. I don't remember which. But I was happy to be reminded by The New York Times about the Yankees' wild triple play from early last season:
... the Yankees’ feat stood apart for a different reason. In the eighth inning of a game against Baltimore, they caught the visiting Orioles in a 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 triple play to protect a 5-2 lead. Dig through the record books, but this one is tough to match in terms of assists.
In a season that at many turns felt short on fun, the play was not only that, it was also a momentary escape from wondering precisely when an infield of Teixeira, Cano, Jeter and Rodriguez had become one of Overbay, Cano, Nix and Youkilis.
Here's the play:
According to MLB.com's Paul Casella, that was the Yankees' second triple play since 1968 and the first 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 in major-league history. I'm not sure about that last bit, since we've got play-by-play, even for super-exciting triple plays, going back only so far. But sure, if it's a better story that way...
