Baseball team turns rare 2-6-12 double play

Baseball history was made last night when the New York Yankees turned the first 2-6-12 double play in modern times, if not the first sine the game was invented. "I never thought I'd see one of those," said manager Joe Girardi. "It was pretty cool to witness. It wouldn't have been possible if Francisco Cervelli hadn't made such a strong throw to short to get it started. That's what did it." The A's say they plan on appealing the play with the MLB office. "I appreciate baseball history as much as the next guy," said A's manager Bob Geren. "But something is fishy about that play. I'm not sure where that last fielder came from. I think he was a drunk fan who wondered in from the stands."
