Pirates minor-leaguer Andrew Lambo hits for cycle in five innings
It didn't take Altoona's Andrew Lambo long to make history on Tuesday night.
- Lambo completed his cycle by the fifth inning. Once more, for appropriate emphasis: Lambo had tallied a cycle before the game was even official.
- He cycled in order: a single in the first, a double in the third, a triple in the fourth and a homer in the fifth.
- In doing so, Lambo became the first player in the history of Double-A Altoona to hit for the cycle.
The 24-year-old Lambo was originally a fourth-round choice by the Dodgers back in 2007. Across parts of seven minor-league seasons, Lambo owns a career slash line of .275/.343/.435 with 57 home runs in 2,278 plate appearances.
It's possible, of course, that Lambo will never make the bigs, but he'll always have a very special night of baseball to remember.
