PHOENIX -- Hitting home runs aren't exactly a rarity for Padres' catcher Rene Rivera, who has a career-high 10 of them this season.
But hitting triples, which, of course, means a whole lot more running around the bases -- no small feat for a catcher -- certainly rates as a little more unusual.
Rivera earned his second career triple in the sixth inning Saturday after he drove a ball high off the wall in deep center field.
But the umpires initiated a Crew Chief review for a potential home run after Padres manager Bud Black came out of the dugout to ask if Rivera's ball had hit above the yellow line on the center-field wall.
The replay official eventually ruled that the called stood.
Rivera eventually scored when Alexi Amarista singled to right field, cutting the D-backs' lead to 7-3.
