The way I tackled this one was to sort of manipulate the game. I picked a pitcher with a good sinkerball (I think I might have used Chien Ming Wang of the Yankees) and played against a relatively poor hitting team. Simply intentionally walk the first batter (play as the home team so that you pitch first), then try to turn the double play. If you don't think the out will result in a double play, don't bother getting the out. It's a little tedious, but if you do it in this way, you'll unlock the achievement easily, though you may not win the game laugh

If you're new to baseball, a double play is getting 2 outs on one play. Usually this happens in the form of getting an out at second and then getting the force out at first from the batter not reaching it in time. To do this, the ball is usually hit towards the shorstop or second baseman, who tags second base, then throws to first.
