The New York Mets turned an impressive triple play during the sixth inning of their game against Los Angeles Dodgers today. With Bartolo Colon on the hump, Matt Kemp roped a ball to Matt Campbell at third, who started a standard double play with a throw to Daniel Murphy covering second. Murphy turned and fired it to Lucas Duda to complete the double play.
Which is where it would have ended had Yasiel Puig not still been on the base path. Puig, who has a tendancy to play the game as if it was the Little League World Series, thought he could make it home without Duda seeing him.
Unfortunately, Duda saw him and the play wasn’t even close.
Just a standard 5-4-3-2 triple play.
