What exactly is the point of the Phillies Intentional Walking him with runners on 2nd and 3rd and none out? Were they planning on getting out of the inning with a triple play?

http://community.kournikova.com/images/smilies/king.gif Maybe a double play throwing to home (there would be a force out and no need to tag the runner at home when the bases are loaded) then to first. Now there would only be a runner on third (the runner on second who advanced) and second (the runner on first who advanced) with two out. Just a thought.
