On April 12, 2013 — The Yankees turn only their second triple play since 1969 in defeating the Orioles, 5 – 2. With two men on in the 8th, Manny Machado hits a hard grounder to 2B Robinson Cano. The play then goes 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 as Alexi Casilla is caught in a rundown between second and third, and Machado is erased when he attempts to take second during that time. It is the first time that a triple killing has taken that particular circuitous route.
