Eric Bruntlett turns unassisted triple play to end Phillies' win over Mets

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
A baseball event even more rare than the much ballyhooed perfect game tossed by White Sox' Mark Buehrle happened today.

Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Eric Bruntlett turned just the 15th unassisted triple play in history to close out a 5-4 win over the New York Mets at Citi Field. With the runners on first and second stealing, Mets outfielder Jeff Francoeur smoked a line drive up the middle that Bruntlett was able to snag. He then stepped on the bag at second and tagged the runner from first to end the game.
