Watch the Tigers turn a triple play vs. Blue Jays

Candelario to Kinsler to Navarro, 5-4-3 for the first triple play in 16 years

via @tigers

With a nifty play at third base, Jeimer Candelario started the first Tigers’ triple play in 16 years. Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar hit a sharp ball to third, which Candelario dove to snag before touching third. He threw to Ian Kinsler, who threw to Efren Navarro to complete it 5-4-3.

The last Tigers triple play occurred on Aug. 1, 2001: Damion Easley to Deivi Cruz to Shane Halter against Seattle.
