Dodgers turn triple play in 9th against Padres
LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers have turned a triple play in the ninth inning of their game against the San Diego Padres.
The bizarre play came with the score tied 4-all Sunday.
Chris Denorfia led off with a single against Javy Guerra. Chase Headley walked and Jesus Guzman squared to bunt the runners over, but the pitch came high and tight and hit Guzman's bat as he backed up from the pitch. The ball landed in front of the plate and catcher A.J. Ellis alertly picked it up and threw to third.
Guzman, startled by what happened, didn't run to first base, which made it easy for third baseman Juan Uribe to relay to shortstop Dee Gordon at second base. In turn, he threw to James Loney to complete the triple play.
Padres manager Bud Black came out to argue with plate umpire and crew chief Dale Scott, who ejected him.
It was the Dodgers' first triple play since June 13, 1998, against Colorado at Dodger Stadium.
