Indians turn triple play against Dodgers, with 2 instant replay challenges

Three outs and two challenges on one play at Chavez Ravine.

The Dodgers had runners on first and third base with nobody out in the fourth inning and cleanup hitter Adrian Gonzalez at the plate, an ideal spot to do some damage. But left fielder Michael Brantley and the Indians had other ideas.

Brantley caught Gonzalez's short fly ball, threw out Dee Gordon at home, then for good measure catcher Yan Gomes caught Yasiel Puig trying to advance to second base.

Puig was initially called safe at second but upon instant replay the call was changed to an out. The Dodgers then challenged the out ruling at home, which was upheld. So not only did we have a 7-2-4 triple play, but also the first double-challenge triple play in baseball history.

How rare is a 7-2-4 triple play? Very:
