VIDEO: Brewers turn triple play, avoid no-hitter against Marlins

Even as they struggled just to get a hit (avoiding a no-hitter thanks to Jonathan Lucroy in the 9th, leading to a rally), the Milwaukee Brewers made a bit of team history Friday night in their game at home against the Miami Marlins.

The team produced a triple play in the 5th inning.

It happened off the bat of Marcell Ozuna. He hit a smash to third base, where Aaron Hill stepped on the bag and got a runner coming from second base. 

Delivering quickly, he got the ball to Yadiel Rivera at second base for the second out. He, in turn, turned and delivered a perfect strike to Chris Carter to turn a zero-out inning into a finished inning.

It was the 7th triple play in team history.

Watch:

The Brewers were nearly no-hit going into the 9th inning, but Lucroy's single started a three-run 9th inning and rescued the team from an incredible statistical anomaly.
