Rafael Furcal becomes the 12th player in big league history to turn an unassisted triple play. With Cardinals runners on first (Orlando Palmeiro) and second (Mike Matheny) in the fifth inning, the Braves shortstop makes a leaping catch of pitcher Woody Williams’ liner and steps on second base to double up Matheny before tagging out Palmeiro, who is attempting to get back to first base.
