Rockies rookie shortstop Troy Tulowitzki pulled off an unassisted triple play in the team's 9-7 win today over the Braves. Man, I knew they were rare, but it was only the 12th in major league history (regular season):
Tulowitzki pulled off one of the baseball's rarest plays in the seventh inning. With Kelly Johnson on second and Edgar Renteria on first, Chipper Jones smoked a line drive at Tulowitzki. He snared it, stepped on second to double up Johnson, then tagged Renteria for the third out.
Looking for video.

Update: ESPN has it up. The play looks almost routine. Boink, boink, boink, as baseball experts say.
