DENVER (AP) -Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki had an unassisted triple play in the seventh inning of the Rockies' game against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.
After Kelly Johnson and Edgar Renteria reached on singles, Tulowitzki caught Chipper Jones' line drive behind second base. Tulowitzki stepped on the bag to double up Johnson and tagged Renteria for the third out.
It was the 13th unassisted triple play in major league history and first since Rafael Furcal of the Braves did it on Sept. 10, 2003, against the Cardinals.
It was the second triple play in the Rockies' 13-year history. The first happened April 10, 2003, against St. Louis.
