 DENVER (AP) -Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki turned a rare unassisted triple play in the seventh inning against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.
Kelly Johnson and Edgar Renteria reached on singles and were running on a 3-2 pitch when Tulowitzki caught Chipper Jones' line drive behind second base. The rookie stepped on the bag to double up Johnson, then tagged Renteria for the third out.
It was the 13th unassisted triple play in major league history and first since shortstop Rafael Furcal did it for Atlanta on Sept. 10, 2003, against St. Louis.
``It's amazing,'' Tulowitzki said. ``It kind of just fell in my lap.''
Apparently unsure if he had completed the play properly, Tulowitzki went back and touched second base again, then threw to first. Nothing to worry about - the inning was already over.
It was the second triple play in the Rockies' 13-year history. The first happened April 10, 2003, against St. Louis.
It also was the second triple play in the major leagues this season. Philadelphia did it against the Cincinnati Reds on April 21.
