Brewers turn triple play against Giants

Brewers turn triple play against GiantsMILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Brewers turned their first triple play in 10 years, pulling it Sunday on a grounder by San Francisco's Aaron Rowand.

With Randy Winn on second and Ryan Garko on first in the sixth inning, Brewers third baseman Casey McGehee fielded a sharp grounder by Rowand right on the bag.

McGehee touched third and threw to second baseman Felipe Lopez for the force. Lopez's relay to Prince Fielder beat Rowand by a step for the triple play, and pitcher Braden Looper celebrated by pumping his fist in triumph.

It was the Brewers' first triple play since April 16, 1999, against the Cubs and fifth overall.

San Francisco last hit into a triple play on Aug. 5, 1998, when J.T. Snow did it against the Mets.
