Triple plays are rare enough to begin with. The one Kentucky managed to pull of in the top of the second inning on Tuesday night is even more out of the ordinary: the less than conventional 7-2-6 triple play. You can watch the three outs below:

According to Baseball Reference, a triple play of the 7-2-6 variety has only occurred once in Major League Baseball History. On July 6, 1923, the Philadelphia Phillies turned a 7-2-6 triple play against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
No. 13 Kentucky currently leads rival No. 2 Louisville 9-0 in the top of the fourth inning.
