Astros turn around-the-horn triple play

Now this is one way to get out of a first and second, no out jam – a 5-4-3 triple play! That's what the Houston Astros pulled off against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday

Ian Kinsler smacked the ball over to Jonathan Villar at third, who stepped on the bag for out number one, fired it to Jose Altuve at second for out number two, and Altuve gunned it over to Chris Carter at first for out number three.

That could have been a huge fifth inning for the Tigers, but Lance McCullers Jr. got the ground ball he needed to limit the damage. I don’t think he could have ever imagined the ground ball would have resulted in three outs instead of two.
