Unbelievable Triple Play Turned By Triple-A Nashville Sounds (Video)
Last Monday the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers turned a triple play. On Saturday night, the Brew Crew’s Triple-A affiliate turned one of their own.
The funny thing is, the minor league triple play was far more impressive than the one turned by the big leaguers.
Let me set it up for you. The Nashville Sounds were in Omaha on Saturday playing the Omaha Storm Chasers. In the bottom of the third inning, the Storm Chasers had runners on first and second with nobody out when Clint Robinson cracked a shot to deep center field. Nashville center fielder Logan Schafer got a late jump on the ball, but managed to catch up with it. That’s when this happened:
The ball goes off Schafer’s glove, off his head, then back into his glove for the first out. Schafer throws to second baseman Eric Farris for out #2, who then throws to first baseman Mat Gamel for out #3. Rally: terminated.
Obviously, the Omaha base runners were so befuddled by the initial play out in center field that they lost all sense of space and time, allowing Nashville the opportunity to complete the rare triple play.
