Last Sunday the Chicago White Sox made the very first triple play in the majors in more than a year, in the 6th inning of the game, winning 9-7 over the Minnesota Twins.

Some of the Chicago gamers worked extremely difficult for the team as Jermaine Dye and A.J Pierzynski; the baseball group had been outscored 18-5 in two losses to start the four-game series.

With a 9-7 defeat, it appeared like the Twins were focused in the match when Nick Punto led off with a bunt single and Shannon Stewart walked. With the team’s best hitter, and one of the AL’s best bunters, at the plate in Luis Castillo, the Twins tried to move the runners over.

Punto and Stewart took off at the pitch, but Castillo made a bunt down the first-base line. White Sox initially baseman Paul Konerko charged in and made a small grasp then turned and threw to Tadahito Iguchi in the beginning to get Stewart. Iguchi then fired to Juan Uribe to obtain Punto at 2nd base.

But, all the Minnesota synergy where simply a waste of time due to the fact that something unexpected and terrific occurred that night for the White Sox.

It was the first AL triple play considering that July 7, 2004, when the White Sox did it versus the Angels. The Twins were tripled up for the very first time since Sept. 8, 1996, likewise against the Angels. And in 2005 the St. Louis Cardinals made a triple play on May 5th against the San Diego Padres
