Insult upon injury

August 24, 2009 in Sports

The Mets just can't catch a break:

On a day when Mets starter Oliver Perez allowed six runs in the first inning, the Mets were in a position to win in the ninth with one swing of the bat, only to be thwarted by one of the rarest plays in baseball.

Eric Bruntlett pulled off an unassisted triple play in the ninth inning, the 15th in major league history and just the second to end a game.

Unfortunately, despite having one of the most advanced online presences among professional sports leagues, MLB's media lockdown (no rebroadcasting without "expressed written consent") means I have to send you here to see the play in action.
