A CYCLE IN A LOSING CAUSE!
You can’t blame Jorge Polanco for the Twins loss. He smacked a cycle and collected 5 hits. The fact that his homer was the only run he scored and the only run he knocked in may have explained how he had such a highlight in a 10-4 blowout the other way.
Either way, Minnesota has their first cycle since Michael Cuddyer’s in 2009 and we got the first one of the year.
Here is the list, updated for today’s action!

Maybe the Marlins could finally hit for the cycle in the post season.
No other sport can match the excitement over each moment that a no hitter can create. A game in early April got me so excited that I sat in my car parked in the driveway listening to two teams I do not care about, just for the possibility of a no hitter.
