The UCA Bears just turned an incredible triple play!

The Bears have made headlines more than once this season and they were at it again Friday night.

Leading 7-1 over North Alabama, the Bears were in a jam. North Alabama had two runners on with no outs. And then after one swing, the inning was over!

The Bears pieced together a 5-3-4 triple play. The North Alabama runner got caught lacking between second and third base and was eventually tagged out at the end of the play.

In turn, the video of the highlight-reel play gained traction online.

The Bears won the game 9-2 over the Lions in the Atlantic Sun tilt. Seven Bear batters picked up at least one hit with three batters netting multi-hit nights.

They remain unbeaten at this point through ASUN play. After they swept their opening series against the North Florida Ospreys last week, they are right back at it this week.

Among the mid-majors, UCA has certainly gotten off to a great start. They’ve netted losses to ranked squads like LSU and Oklahoma State. But they, however, stung their in-state adversaries, the Arkansas Razorbacks, earlier this year in a historic upset.

It was the biggest upset in program history by ranking as they defeated the then-sixth-ranked Razorbacks.

Now, tonight, UCA has made more history!
