In San Francisco, the Cubs pull off the first triple play in the majors this year, taking advantage of the infield-fly rule and the wind at San Francisco to turn an odd one against the Giants. With two on, Stan Javier lofts a fly into shallow center field and umpire Bob Davidson waits before calling an infield fly rule. Three Cubs lunge for the ball before it bounces off center fielder Brian McRae's glove and hits the ground for the first out. Kirk Rueter tries for third, but McRae's throw beats him. Hamilton tries for second, but 3B Jose Hernandez's throw to Ryne Sandberg nabs him to complete the triple play. The Giants will win the game, however, 4-2.
