A-Rod starts first Yankees triple play in over 40 years

What's the cliche about  baseball? That there's always the chance you will see something you never have before? Well, the Yankees just had  a triple play again, the first such play the Bombers have done since 1968!

Here's the story - the A's had runners on first and second, with Kurt Suzuki at the plate. Suzuki hit a three-run homer off CC Sabathia in the first inning, but in the sixth, he hit into a triple play, started by Alex Rodriguez, who made an out at third. He  threw to Robinson Cano, who made the second out, and Cano threw to Mark Teixeira, who made the third out.

I remember the unassisted triple play former Yankee Randy Velarde made against the Bombers in 2000, when he was with Oakland. Now the Athletics are the victim of a triple play by the Yanks.

And, of course, I remember the unassisted triple play against the Mets last fall. Now, that was a moment to set Squawker Jon fuming, as he will when he hears what happened in today's game!

What do you think?  Tell us about  it!
