Trea Turner hits for third Nationals cycle ever, knocks in seven runs in wild game
Turner follows Cristian Guzman and Brad Wilkerson on a night where 27 runs were scored at Coors Field
- Turner singled to right field in the first inning. He would end up scoring on a Bryce Harper double.
- In the second inning, Turner doubled to left field, plating two runs.
- In the fourth, he lined out to center.
- In the sixth, Turner cranked a two-run home run.
- In the seventh, Turner stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and tripled home all three runners.
- He grounded out to short in the ninth. Bummer.
Still Turner went nuts as his team went on to beat the Rockies 15-12 in a game where pitching was missing in action. That's four hits, including a double, triple and home run (that's hitting for the cycle, people) along with four runs scored and seven RBI. Holy smokes, that's a lot of fantasy points, right?
Here's the cycle:
Turner's cycle is the third in Nationals history, after Cristian Guzman (Aug. 28, 2008) and Brad Wilkerson (April 6, 2005). It was the ninth cycle in "franchise history," including everything from the Expos era.
Have a day, Trea, have a day.
