SHOHEI HIT THE LIGHTS OUT!
In a night where the lights literally went out in Tampa Bay, Shohei Ohtani provided the electricity with a Cycle, the first one by the Angels since his teammate Mike Trout did so in 2013.
Here is the list, updated for today’s action!
THE MOST CYCLE HIT
FOR EACH FRANCHISE
April 5, 2019 vs Philadelphia
September 17, 2018 vs Cincinnati Reds
TAMPA PAY RAYS
September 28, 2016 vs. Chicago Cubs
July 2, 2016 vs. Toronto
NEW YORK YANKEES
August 2, 2009 vs Chicago White Sox
June 4, 2007 vs. Boston
August 1, 2006 vs Tampa Bay.
ST. LOUIS CARDINALS
April 27, 2005 vs. Milwaukee Brewers
June 28, 2004 vs. Montreal
TORONTO BLUE JAYS
August 17, 2001 vs. Texas
May 9, 1993 vs San Diego
KANSAS CITY ROYALS
June 24, 1990 vs. Toronto
Last Cycles Hit For Teams in Old Locations
September 14, 2003 vs. New York Mets
May 26, 1964 vs. Boston
NEW YORK GIANTS
July 11, 1954 vs. Pittsburgh
August 2, 1950 vs. Chicago White Sox
June 25, 1949 vs. Pittsburgh
ST. LOUIS BROWNS
July 19, 1941 vs. Boston Red Sox
October 6, 1910 vs. Philadelphia Phillies
Still no Marlins player has ever hit for the cycle.
The rise of Austin Riley and the signing of Dallas Keuchel have given the Braves a nice spark as they sit in first place alone. The Phillies need to make a trade to keep up.
Meanwhile the Twins can score at will, Justin Verlander dominates and the Red Sox won in the stupidest way possible: A Walk Off Walk.
