PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Phillies have turned a triple play against the Chicago Cubs.

Anthony Rizzo walked and Tommy La Stella singled to begin the fifth inning on Sunday. Javier Baez then hit a sinking liner to left field, and Rhys Hoskins made a diving catch.

Hoskins dropped the ball while transferring it out of his glove, but third base umpire Jerry Layne ruled right away it was a catch. Hoskins then threw to second to double off Rizzo, who already was on third base, and second baseman Cesar Hernandez threw to first to get La Stella, who was caught in between first and second.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon challenged Layne's ruling that it was a catch, but the call was upheld after a replay delay of 2 minutes, 29 seconds.
