    Just your average 9-3-2-6-2-5 triple play.
    From "Triple plays are relatively rare, since a triple play requires at least two runners already on base, no outs, a batted ball hit in a way that allows it to be fielded cleanly so that three baserunners can be put out or unusual incompetence in baserunning, and quick action from the fielders to perform."

    1) Abreu was a carnival tagging the guy at first and then throwing home weakly from his pants.

    2) OMG when did Prince Fielder (the runner on third) put on another 50 lbs?!?

    Then I watched it again and got angry at the Rangers and the 3rd base coach.

    Their 3rd base coach should be demoted or fired or both.

    Prince and Beltre should have to pay $100,000 each in Kangaroo court fines.
    Or Beltre can let 20 random fans rub his head for luck before the next game. His choice.

    But it was exciting AF and I wish I'd been there.
