Has there ever been a 1-2-3 unassisted inning in baseball?

There have been a few unassisted triple plays in baseball history. Also, 3 strikeouts could qualify under your criteria. I'm sure there have been other 1-2-3 unassisted innings in baseball. How about three fly balls, three pop ups, three ground balls to first. Happens all the time in MLB games.

What is the odds of occurrence for an unassisted triple play?

According to the Society for American Baseball Research, there have been 13 unassisted triple plays in MLB since 1876, the first being in 1909. That would make the odds of an unassisted triple play about 1 in every 10 years. Interestingly, these things seem to come in groups. Six of the thirteen came in the 1920s. Three of the thirteen have come in the 2000s. And on top of that, there were unassisted triple plays on successive days in 1927. On May 30, 1927 shortstop Jimmy Cooney of the Chicago Cubs turned an unassisted triple play against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The very next day first baseman Johnny Neun of the Detroit Tigers turned an unassisted triple play against the Cleveland Indians.

UPDATE: There was a 14th unassisted triple play on May 12, 2008 when Asdrubal Cabrera of the Cleveland Indians notched one against the Toronto Blue Jays.
