THE FIRST PADRE CYCLE!!!

 

No Padre has ever thrown a no hitter. No Padres team has ever won the World Series. No Padre had ever hit for the cycle… until now.

Matt Kemp hit a fly ball that ricocheted off the right center field wall in Coors Field. By the time he stood at third base, the cycle was achieved.

This has been a rough year for the Padres and for Kemp, but this hit must have felt sweet.

Here is the list, updated for today’s action!

Mitch Moreland collected 4 hits including a 2 run double and a 2 run homer, helping the Rangers erase an early 4-0 hole and and win 6-5 in Minnesota.

Mark Buehrle pitched 7 strong innings, allowing 2 runs and striking out 8 to get the 4-2 decision for Toronto who swept Oakland for their 11th straight victory.

Kyle Schwarber reached base 4 times with a pair of homers and 4 RBI, helping the red hot Cubs crush the Brewers 9-2.

Noah Syndergaard allowed a pair of first inning homers and then settled down to keep the Rockies to 3 runs and 4 hits over 7 innings, and earned the 12-3 decision for the first place Mets.

They all owned baseball on August 13, 2015

Earning 1/2 WOBs on losing efforts.

Eric Hosmer singled and homered, scoring twice and driving in a pair in Kansas City’s 7-6 loss to the Angels.

Jeremy Guthrie held the Angels to 2 hits and 1 run over 6 innings. However the Royals bullpen had a very rare meltdown and lost the 7-6 game in the 9th.

Enrique Hernandez went 3 for 4 and added a walk but was stranded every time as the Dodgers lost to the Reds, 10-3.

Stephen Strasburg struck out 8 Giants in 6 innings but also let up a pair of runs and lost the 3-1 game for the Nationals.
