The Menlo School-Atherton (Calif.) baseball team was up against the ropes in their playoff game Capuchino-San Bruno on Wednesday, but they came away with an incredible win thanks to game-ending triple play.

Menlo, up 2-1 in the bottom of the seventh, was facing a bases-loaded situation with no outs when Capuchino's Kyle Patterson hit a line drive to center field. But shortstop Mikey Diekroeger made a terrific diving catch for the ball, then tagged second and threw to first.

Thanks to Diekroeger's diving catch, Menlo got a walk-off triple play to help them advance to the quarterfinals.
