Indiana gets out of jam with 1-2-6-2, strike-'em-out, throw-'em-out, tag-'em-out triple play

The Indiana University Hoosiers found themselves in a bit of a jam during the first inning of their NCAA Regionals opening round game against the Highlanders of Radford University on Friday. 

With Highlander runners on first and third with nobody out, Hoosiers hurler Kyle Hart struck out Radford's Patrick Marshall. Catcher Brad Hartong threw down to second to catch the runner stealing from first. After the tag was applied, the Hoosiers caught the other runner between third and home. Hartong ended up chasing the guy down to complete the strange-but-awesome triple play.

That goes down in your books as a 1-2-6-2 triple play. Just like they drew it up.
