Yankees fall victim to rare run-scoring triple play against Reds

But Carl Everett, running from second, took a wide turn at third and Justin Morneau threw to third baseman Tony Batista for the triple play.

Frazier had a prime opportunity to become a "true Yankee" in his first at-bat at Yankee Stadium.

Are the Yankees a safe bet to beat the Reds on the runline this afternoon when the two teams meet at 1:05PM ET? "I threw my curveball well when I needed it to put somebody away, and I threw a couple good sliders".

On Tuesday night, Todd Frazier made his home debut with the Yankees and he came up with the bases loaded and no outs in his first at-bat.

But Peraza didn't catch it, obligating Gregorius to run.

This was their first home game of the second half after they went 6-5 on a long three-city road trip.

Valdez (1-0), making his first start and fifth appearance as a Blue Jay, allowed five hits, one walk, one run and struck out four in his second start of the season.

"I wanted him to have a good outing and that's what he had", manager Joe Girardi said of why he took out Montgomery after just 85 pitches.

Matt Holliday, who had led off with a single, scored to make it 1-0. Eh, whatever. Frazier, by the way, has now driven in two runs with the Yankees.

Girardi brought in Tommy Kahnle, who got pinch-hitter Scooter Gennett to fly out to center to end the inning.

Frazier had a memorable night.

In order for a run to score on a triple play, there obviously has to be a tag involved, and that's exactly what we got here, with Didi Gregorious breaking back towards second when the ball was hit. He got ahead in the count 3-1 against Luis Castillo before hitting a sharp grounder to shortstop Jose Peraza. However, what's a little less common was the Yankees still adding a run to the scoreboard in the process.

Gregorious would be called out for leaving the base path, but through all that madness, the Yankees scored a run. John Lackey (7-9) became the first major leaguer to hit four batters in two years, but managed to get into the sixth inning for his second straight victory. After a quick back-and-forth, he was tagged out to complete the triple play.

Montgomery was unfazed by his early departure and was more concerned with the Yankees securing the win.
