The Los Angeles Dodgers rallied in the top of the second inning on Monday night against Randy Wolf and the Milwaukee Brewers, putting runners on first and second base with nobody out. However, James Loney grounded to second baseman Josh Wilson, who flipped to shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt, then onto Prince Fielder for a double play...only the play wasn't done.â†µ
Fielder threw home, as Matt Kemp tried to score from second base. Replays showed Kemp may have evaded the tag of catcher George Kottaras, but Kemp was called out, completing the 4-6-3-2 triple play.â†µ
The last time the Dodgers hit into a triple play was on May 4, 2009, when Casey Blake lined out to shortstop against Arizona int he second inning. The fielder to start the triple play two years ago was Wilson, the same man who started Monday's triplet killing.â†µ
Good news for the Dodgers: they won that game in 2009, 7-2. There is still hope against the Brewers tonight.â†µ
