Triple Play, Unassisted by Phillies Eric Bruntlett – August 23, 2009
Eric Bruntlett is the 15th player in baseball’s modern era to pull of an unassisted triple play. Bruntlett’s hat tricked came in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Mets at Shea Stadium, on August 23, 2009. This was only the second time when a game ended on a triple play. The first time it happened was in 1927 when the Tigers Johnny Neun ended a game against the Indians in similar fashion to Bruntlett. He caught line drive, touched second base and tagged a runner.
