You don’t see that every day.
In the eighth inning of Saturday’s game against Cleveland, Reds reliever Amir Garrett gave up back-to-back singles that put runners on the corners with no outs. Josh Naylor followed by lining a ball to first base, where Joey Votto snared the ball and tagged out Franmil Reyes. Thinking the ball hit the ground first, Eddie Rosario went home as Votto held the ball and waited.
Votto tossed the ball to third base, where Rosario was out on a triple play. It was the 31st triple play in Reds history and Cincinnati’s first since Todd Frazier completed the feat on July 25, 2017, at Yankee Stadium.
Votto roared with excitement as the crowd at Great American Ball Park came alive to show their approval.
