If you made a list right now of players least likely to leg out a triple, Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina would be right at the top of the list, or maybe just below Billy Butler.
Well, as of Wednesday night, each player as one triple on the season. Molina's is of the stand-up variety and he got it in a clutch situation in the eighth inning off top-notch Chicago White Sox reliever David Robertson.
Molina's opposite field, three-run shot put the Cardinals up for good, and gave Molina, according to MLB.com reporter Jennifer Langosch, his first triple in 2,071 at bats. That it was Robinson on the mound had to only increase the unlikelihood that his three-bagger would have come at that much-needed moment.
To Robinson's credit, he took to Twitter to give Molina his props.
