Unfortunately, the play came in a 4-2 loss to the A's in Oakland, snapping a six-game winning streak.
CC Sabathia pitched eight innings, but struggled with his control, allowing four runs, three earned, on four hits and six walks. He struck out just two, which explains why he threw just 97 pitches, only 51 for strikes.
The last time the Yankees turned a triple play was on June 3, 1968 -- as span of 6,632 regular season games -- with Mickey Mantle recording the final out on a ball hit by Minnesota's John Roseboro.
Pitcher Dooley Womack snagged a liner by Roseboro, threw to third baseman Bobby Cox to get the second out. Cox relay was in time to Mantle at first.
