I was listening to the Mariners/Rangers game last night (Rangers won 12-7) and I heard the announcer talking about a 3-6-1 double play. What does that mean (3-6-1 double play)?

Each position on the field has a number assigned to it.

So a 3-6-1 is when the ball is hit down the first base line, he throws to the short stop who gets the out at 2nd, and then the pitcher covers 1st for the 2nd out.
