TRIPLE PLAY: Cleveland Indians Get an Early 2011 Highlight
The baseball season may only be a few days old, but the Cleveland Indians already have a play that will undoubtedly be included on the team's 2011 highlight reel under their belt.
In the fourth inning yesterday against the Chicago White Sox, the Indians pulled off the major league's first triple play of the season when first baseman Carlos Santana, who normally plays catcher, made a diving catch of Alexi Ramirez's bunt with two Sox's players on the base paths. Santana then threw to first to double up A.J. Pierzynski. Orlando Cabrera, who received the throw at first, threw to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera to nail Carlo Quentin at second, sealing the triple play.
The Indians took the game 7-1 for their first win of the season.
