July 8, 1994
Red Sox shortstop John Valentin snares Marc Newfield’s sixth inning line drive, steps on second retiring Mike Blowers and then tags Kevin Mitchell coming from first to turn an unassisted triple play. After completing the rare feat, accomplishing a play that has occurred only ten times in major league history, the infielder begins a three-homer outburst by Boston in the bottom of the inning, helping the team beat the Mariners at Fenway Park, 4-3.
