WATCH: Sam Houston State turns triple play in the Super Regionals

There's something you don't see everyday.

Sam Houston State came out hot in its first-ever trip to the Super Regionals. It put a quick three-spot on the scoreboard in the first inning and kept rolling from there behind some nifty defense — including a 5-4-3 triple play to get out of a third inning jam.

New pitcher Riley Cooper came on for Sam Houston State in the third. He allowed a leadoff walk and after back-to-back singles, the Seminoles were in business. One run was across and two were still on with no outs.

That is until Quincy Nieporte came to the plate. He hit a sharp grounder to Bearkats third baseman Taylor Beene, who quickly stepped on third before starting the around-the-horn trifecta. The Florida State threat was eliminated with three outs in a matter of seconds.

Beene wasn't done, either. He would come through with another clutch play at the hot corner in the sixth.

The Bearkats couldn't hold onto its lead, however, as the Seminoles rallied from three runs down in the ninth to walk off as 7-6 winners. Jackson Lueck provided the game-winning single -- his fourth RBI single of the day --  to plate Taylor Walls and take the 1-0 series lead.
