“Let’s be ready for the triple play,” Ian Kinsler told rookie infielder Jeimer Candelario on Friday. “Let’s do the triple play.” In the sixth inning of Friday’s 5-4 squeaker over the Blue Jays, with runners on first and second, the Tigers finally got their chance. Kevin Pillarsmoked a ball to the third-base line, catching Candelario square in the mitt as he retired Justin Smoak and fired the ball to Ian Kinsler at second. Kinsler gloved the ball ahead of Kendrys Morales, then airmailed it to Efren Navarro to catch Pillar seconds before he touched the first base bag.

While the feat was a first for infielders Candelario and Navarro, it was the second such play for Ian Kinsler. The first, strangely enough, was a 4-6-6 maneuver against the Tigers in 2009.
