in the bottom of the 9th inning, Phils second baseman Eric Bruntlett scored an unassisted triple play against the Mets. It's only the fifteenth
in MLB history.
Runners on first and second were both signaled to steal. The batter hit a line drive right to the second base bag, and Bruntlett speared it. He stepped on the bag (putting the lead runner out) he then tagged the runner coming in from first.
This is even more rare than "perfect games" for pitchers, of which there have been 18.
