The Phillies were in a jam, so they casually busted out the 5-4-3 triple play

The Phillies found themselves in a jam. Looking to claim the rubber game of their three-game set with the Padres on Sunday, Philly took a slim 6-5 lead into the seventh ... and then things started to unravel. Reliever and 80-grade name Edubray Ramos walked Derek Norris to start the inning, then walked Jose Rondon to put the tying run in scoring position. There was still nobody out. Things looked grim.

Philly, however, didn't panic. Sure, a two-on, no-out jam seems bad, but when you can keep calm, carry on and simply turn a triple play, no situation seems too sticky.

Triple play

Thanks to the handiwork of Maikel Franco, Cesar Hernandez and Tommy Joseph, the Phillies held on for a 6-5 win, which should really be expected when you can come up with three outs on one play whenever you want.
