The New York Yankees turned their second triple play of the season, a 1-3-6-2-5-6 play in the first inning of their Thursday game against the host Toronto Blue Jays in Buffalo.

The 26th triple play in franchise history marked the first time the Yankees have had two triple plays in one season, per the YES Network.

With Marcus Semien on second and Bo Bichette on first for the Blue Jays, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit a tapper to the left side. It was fielded by New York pitcher Michael King, who threw to first baseman DJ LeMahieu for one out.

Semien was caught between third and home after a rundown involving shortstop Gleyber Torres, catcher Gary Sanchez and third baseman Gio Urshela. Bichette then tried to advance to third, and Urshela flipped the ball to a covering Torres for the final out.

The Yankees previously executed a triple play on May 21 against the Chicago White Sox.
