New York Yankees execute triple play against Tampa Bay Rays (Video)

The New York Yankees headed down to Florida Thursday night to take on the Tampa Bay Rays to begin a four-game series, and they have C.C. Sabathia going on the mound. Sabathia hasn’t gotten off to the best start to the season thus far, so a good outing is needed tonight, and some help from the teammates on the infield always helps.

Like turning a triple play, for instance, which the Yankees did to the Rays to end the second inning  already up 4-0, started on a grounder by Sean Rodriguez.

With runners on first and second, the hot shot came right to the rookie Yangervis Solarte who was able to get the rare triple play off to a beautiful start, and as you can see, it finished perfectly as well.

What’s not rare, however, is the fact that this is the third time the Yankees have completed the feat with Sabathia on the mound.


That is the ultimate good sign.
