The Twins achieved the feat in the top of the third inning with left-hander Martin Perez pitching. He was on the mound for each of the team's triple plays.
With the bases loaded, Braves catcher Tyler Flowers belted a sharp ground ball to Minnesota third baseman Miguel Sano. He stepped on third base and threw the ball to second baseman Jonathan Schoop, who fired a relay to first baseman C.J. Cron.
Before the triple play, the Braves scored three runs in the inning to boost their advantage to 6-0. The rare play prevented Atlanta from building a larger lead.
Perez also pitched July 22 against the New York Yankees when slugger Edwin Encarnacion grounded into a 5-4-3 triple play. Luis Arraez, Schoop and Sano, who was playing first base in that contest, turned the triple play.
Before this season, the Twins (70-44) hadn't turned a triple play since June 1, 2017. The MLB record for most triple plays in a single season is three, which last occurred in the 2016 campaign by the Chicago White Sox.
The Braves (68-48) defeated the Twins 11-7 to take the three-game series.
