Nationals' Trea Turner becomes 26th player in history to record multiple cycles
Turner hit for the cycle against the Rockies back in 2017, and did it again on Tuesday night
On Tuesday, Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner recorded his second career cycle. The feat, the fourth of the season, came as part of a blowout win against the Colorado Rockies. Coincidentally, Turner had previously hit for the cycle against the Rockies on April 25, 2017. He's the 26th player in history to record multiple cycles in his career.
Here's a look at all of Turner's hits on the night:
Turner started the evening by hitting a home run to begin the bottom of the first inning. In the second inning (hey, it was that kind of night) he reached on an infield single that deflected off pitcher Peter Lambert. He tripled in the fifth on a line drive that eluded right fielder Charlie Blackmon. And then, yes, in the seventh he doubled to right-center.
For those wondering, this is the 19th cycle to come against the Rockies. Yet it's the first to occur outside of Coors Field. As for the Nationals, it's their fourth since moving to Washington, D.C. and the second to take place at Nationals Park. Brad Wilkerson and Cristian Guzman are the other two to pull off the feat.
