Video: Myrtle Beach Pelicans turn a triple play

The Rangers' high-A affiliate turned a triple play tonight

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans turned a triple play tonight.

So that's pretty cool.

Myrtle Beach is the high-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, owned by Chuck Greenberg, and they have a nice collection of prospects this season.  The Pelicans Twitter feed sent out a congratulatory tweet on the event:

It went down thusly...Justin Bloxom and Levi Hyams of Lynchburg led off the inning with back-to-back singles off of Victor Payano, bringing up Joseph Odom.  Odom grounded to third base, with third baseman Luis Mendez touching third base and throwing on to second baseman Chris Bostick, who then went to Preston Beck at first base to complete the around-the-horn triple play.

There's no video of it available, so instead, here's video of a Travis Demeritte home run:

UPDATE -- Here's video!  And if there were replay review, this would probably be a double play, but that's okay...
