Rockies turn triple play in 9th inning vs Diamondbacks
DENVER (AP) The Colorado Rockies turned a triple play in the ninth inning of their 6-4 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
With the runners on first and second moving on the pitch from Jason Gurka, Paul Goldschmidt hit a line drive to shortstop Jose Reyes, who was shaded up the middle. Reyes threw to second baseman DJ LeMahieu to force out Ender Inciarte, then LeMahieu relayed to first baseman Ben Paulsen to get out Phil Gosselin.
It is the fourth triple play in Rockies history and the first since May 18, 2014, against San Diego. Troy Tulowitzki had the only unassisted triple play in team history on April 20, 2007.
