Todd Frazier's first home at bat with Yankees turns into triple play

Todd Frazier's first home at bat with Yankees turns into triple play

This was not the Todd Frazier had in mind when he was thinking about his first at-bat as a Yankee in The Bronx. But instead of a heroic grand slam for his homecoming, Frazier ended the inning.

Frazier, who grew up in Toms River, N.J. and was able to spend time with his family on his off day, said before the game he couldn't be happier to make his Yankees home debut.

The Yankees and Reds combined for a play even rarer, though, and perhaps the second-rarest version of the triple play, after the unassisted variety: one that resulted in a run.

With young Reds starter Luis Castillo on the mound at Yankees Stadium, Matt Holliday singled to right, Didi Gregorius singled to right, and Chase Headley singled to left to load the bases.

It was the first triple play against the Yankees since the Rays did it on September 27, 2011. Holliday scored in the meantime, breaking a 0-0 tie, but Gregorius was eventually called out for running out of the base line in a run down.

Unfortunately, things didn't go as Frazier would've liked as he somehow hit into a run-scoring triple play.

Frazier didn't receive an RBI for his work, but the 6-6-3-3-5-6 triple play will be a fun trivia answer for Yankees fans to remember.
