Atlanta Braves Turn Crazy Double Play Against Washington Nationals: Video

The Atlanta Braves turned a terribly odd double play that looked more Little League than Major League in Tuesday's nightcap loss to the Washington Nationals.

With a runner on and no outs in the third inning, Denard Span hit a grounder to Freddie Freeman, who threw to Andrelton Simmons for the force out.

Simmons' throw back to Freeman at first was errant and trickled into right field, allowing Span to take both second and third. Dan Uggla hustled to the ball, only to lose control of the ball on his first throwing attempt. He regained control and relayed to Freeman, who threw to Gerald Laird at home for the second out of the double play.

Just your regular 3-6 fielder's choice, E6, 3-4-2 double play.
