Angels Make First Triple Play in 26 Years in 9th Inning vs. Rays

The Los Angeles Angels produced their first triple play in 26 years in the ninth inning Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The triple play kept the Angels tied 6-6 heading into the ninth in a 9-6 loss in 10 innings.

Harold Ramirez grounded to Luis Rengifo with runners at the corners and the infield shallow.

Shortstop threw to second baseman Brandon Drury for Randy Arozarena and first baseman Nolan Schanuel.

Yandy Diaz was at third but did not move when the ball hit.

He waited until Drury threw to first to start home, but Schanuel threw perfectly to Logan O'Hoppe, who tagged Diaz on his left shoulder before he could touch home.

The county is running the shuttle as part of a grant-funded pilot program to test autonomous vehicles on public transit.

O'Hoppe and the pitcher Carlos Estevez celebrated the triple play. It was the Angels' seventh triple play and first since July 5, 1997, against Seattle.
