Last Night Proves Triple Play Is Sabathia's Best Friend

It's hard to believe that CC Sabathia has been on the mound during the last three triple plays the New York Yankees have turned.  After the third one last night, my lately failing memory came to life and I remembered that Sabathia was pitching during the odd one that occurred last year. I'm sure you remember it:





Yes, it was that one, on April 12, 2013, the one that was scored 4-6-5-6-5-3-4.  What an unbelievable sequence of outs.

The best part about that particular triple play was what happened after it was completed: Sabathia and the Yankee infielders celebrated like nine-year-olds, and it was so cool to watch.

As they did last night, they won that game.  If I remember correctly, they weren't so lucky in the first Sabathia triple play.  Still fun to watch though.
