 CINCINNATI (AP) -The Philadelphia Phillies pulled off their first triple play in almost eight years and the first in the majors this season in the fifth inning against the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday night.
With Josh Hamilton on second base and Edwin Encarnacion on first, catcher David Ross grounded to Phillies third baseman Abraham Nunez, who stepped on third base to force Hamilton and threw to second baseman Chase Utley to force Encarnacion for the second out.
Utley's relay to first baseman Wes Helms caught Ross by a step to complete Philadelphia's first triple play since May 15, 1999, against the New York Mets.
The Reds hadn't hit into a triple play since catcher Eddie Taubensee lined into one against San Diego on May 19, 1997.
The triple play helped the Phillies preserve a 2-1 lead.
There were five triple plays turned in the majors last season, the last by the Chicago White Sox on Sept. 18, against the Detroit Tigers.
