Triple Play

One of the great joys of baseball is when you see something that is almost never done. Phillies 2nd baseman Eric Bruntlett caught a line drive in the bottom of the 9th with no outs then stepped on second and tagged out the runner coming from first for a triple play. The last time I saw a triple play was when Mickey Morandini did it against the Pirates in 1992.

Pedro Martinez is living a charmed life, 2-0 after 3 starts. The Phils got him 12 runs in his first game against the Cubs then Jamie Moyer threw a lights out game after a rain delay against the D-Backs. Today the Phils put up a 6 spot in the 1st and Pedro kept letting them back into it. Then Heartbreak Lidge took over in the 9th and gave up a couple of hits and got burned by errors but Bruntlett was in the right place at the right time. Bruntlett also had 3 hits.

Looking for video that I can embed, help me out.
