The Tigers turned a triple play yesterday

The Detroit Tigers pulled off a triple play in a split-squad game against the Braves.

Atlanta’s Willians Astudo lined a shot to Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias, who got it on a bounce and flipped the ball to second baseman Ian Kinsler, who (a) tagged the runner who had been on second; (b) touched second to force the runner coming from first; and (c) then fired to first baseman Miguel Cabrera to complete the triple play.

Kinsler said he didn’t even know how many outs were made on the play until it was over. It went by too fast, he said.

“It was just a line drive, I touched the base and threw to first. It was the perfect storm,” Kinsler said.
