Justin Morneau and Ryan Doumit singled against A's starter Brett Anderson before Trevor Plouffe hit a sharp grounder to Oakland third baseman Josh Donaldson. Donaldson stepped on the bag, then made a quick relay to second baseman Adam Rosales, who threw to first baseman Chris Carter to complete the 5-4-3 triple play.
Rosales was making just his fifth start of the season after Oakland demoted Jemile Weeks to the minors before the game.
It's the 21st triple play in franchise history and the first by the A's since Randy Velarde's unassisted triple play against the New York Yankees on May 29, 2000.
