Major League Baseball-LPGA Husband-Wife Both Have Triples on Same Day

There's an LPGA Tour player who is married to a Major League Baseball player, and on Saturday they both had triples! Alas, that's only a good thing in baseball. It was the LPGA player who pointed it out:

Amanda Blumenherst is married to Nate Freiman, who plays for the Oakland Athletics. Nate, who is a 6-foot-8 3B/1B/DH, tripled to deep centerfield in the fifth inning of Oakland's 4-3 win over the White Sox on Saturday, driving in one run.

Meanwhile, at the ShopRite LPGA Classic, Blumenherst - who briefly had the second-round lead - was trying to play through very strong winds on a very tough golf course. And on the second hole, she scored a triple-bogey 7.

Two triples in one sporting family on the same day, one of them good, one of them bad. Well, for better or for worse, you know?
