In the Twins 4–3 loss to Tampa Bay, Minnesota 1B Doug Mientkiewicz makes all three outs in the bottom of the 2nd without touching first base. The Devil Rays have Toby Hall on 3B and Randy Winn on 1B with no outs in the inning when Aubrey Huff hits a weak grounder to Mientkiewicz. The first sacker crosses the diamond to chase Hall back to third then tags out Winn who had run all the way around from first. Mientkiewicz then catches Huff wandering off the base to complete an unassisted double play. The next Rays' batter, Jared Sandberg, hits a towering foul pop-up that Mientkiewicz caught for the third out.
