PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Phillies turned their second triple play of the season Wednesday night, doing it on a line drive by Colorado's Matt Holliday.

Cory Sullivan led off the game with a single and Troy Tulowitzki bunted for a single, putting rookie pitcher Kyle Kendrick in an early jam.

Holliday followed with a hard shot that third baseman Greg Dobbs caught inches above the ground.

Dobbs threw to second baseman Chase Utley for the second out, and he tagged the approaching Tulowitzki.

Thinking Dobbs' throw pulled him off the bag, Utley threw back to Dobbs rather than step on the bag. Dobbs then tagged Sullivan, but already was out.

The Phillies also turned a triple play on April 21 at Cincinnati. They've made 30 in team history, including three in 1964.
