Michael Brantley caught a line drive off the bat of Adrian Gonzalez (Out #1) and rifled it home to Yan Gomes who tagged out Dee Gordon (Out #2). At that point, the sneaky Yasiel Puig tried to advance to second but a pin point throw by Gomes to Kipnis put the kabosh on all that (Out #3).
This is the Indians first and the MLB's fourth triple play this year. The Tribe hadn't turned three (so to speak) since the 2011 campaign.
Here's the peanut butter. (Get it? The GIF????)
