Runners on Second and Third, One Out....

Inning ending double play. And here's the wildest part: It wasn't the Phillies. Although this sounds like a classic Lieberthal on second, David Bell on third, Ramon Martinez pinch-hitting situation, it actually happened last night to the Padres. I also learned that the San Diego Chicken was never the team's mascot, just a marketing nuisance. For those interested, the play went as follows: Ground ball to first baseman who touches the base (force out), the runner on third stayed on the bag, but the man on second broke for third, putting himself in a rundown. Toss to second baseman, inning over, rally killed.
