May 31, 1927

Although it will be another 42 years before the next one, an unassisted triple play is made for the second consecutive day in the major leagues. During the ninth inning of the Navin Field contest, first baseman Johnny Neun saves the Tigers’ 1-0 victory when he completes the rare play by catching a Homer Summa line drive, tagging Charlie Jamieson, who was on first, and beating Glenn Myatt to second base, making it the first time the last three outs of a game result from a solo triple killing.
