Every time you go to the ballpark, you can see something you’ve never seen before. And that was the case Monday at the Guaranteed Odds Field, where fans witnessed the first three-goal 8-5 game in MLB history. The Minnesota Twins turns the first three-player game of its kind against the house Chicago White Sox (GameTracker), although it would be more accurate to say that the White Sox were involved in the three-player game.

Here is the video. AJ Pollock raised an excellent balloon with runners-up first and second behind Byron Buxton at center, and Yoan Moncada and Adam Engel both a bit dismayed at the post-catch facilities.

While the three-player game is the main title, you should take a moment to appreciate Buxton’s catch. It is not an easy game. Statcast says Pollock’s drive has an 82% hit probability based on launch angle and exit velocity. Buxton is only so good at middle school.

MLB.com and SABR database confirmed it was actually the first 8-5 three-man match in baseball history. By my unofficial count, this is the 27th triple match started by a center puncher and the first since before that. New York Mets center operator Angel Pagan start three-player 8-2-6-3 with a tight catch against Citizens of Washington in 2010.

The Twins have been in the habit of triple spinning over the past few years. Monday was their fourth since 2019. No team had more. Meanwhile, The White Sox have won three plays in consecutive seasons after failing to play a single game from 2011-20.

This is the third trilogy play this season. The Texas Rangers turn a game of three three 3-3-6 against Seattle Mariners on April 20, year and the National Team move into a 5-4-3 three-way play against the Milwaukee Brewers on May 20.
