Video: Yankees Turn 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 Triple Play

While the Boston Red Sox had an unscheduled night off thanks to rain postponing Friday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, the New York Yankees did what the Red Sox couldn’t do the two previous nights: beat the Baltimore Orioles.

It was the Yankees’ fourth straight win, improving their record to 5-4 to enter into a tie with the Red Sox for first place in the AL East. The 5-2 win came behind eight strong innings from CC Sabathia (1 earned run, 9 strikeouts), a dropped fly ball by Orioles center fielder Adam Jones that allowed three Yankees runs to score and break a 2-2 deadlock (instead of being the final out of the seventh inning), and, naturally, the first ever 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 triple play in the history of major league baseball.

Confused? Don’t worry. Just watch the video after the jump. Because as much as I hate the Yankees, a triple play is still freakin’ awesome to see. And besides, it’s kind of nice to see a joyful Kevin Youkilis (even if he looks weird without a massively bushy beard). I’m happy for him.
