Any MLB fan in the world will tell you that hitting for the cycle is a once in a lifetime thing.
Unless you are Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich.
In which case it is a twice in a season thing!
That’s right, Yelich became the first player in major league history to hit for the cycle against the same team twice in one season.
Yelich, who hit for the cycle against the Cincinnati Reds on Aug. 30, accomplished the rare feat again less than three weeks later. He’s also just the fifth player ever to hit for multiple cycles in the same season.
He singled in the first inning, doubled in the third and hit a two-run homer in the fifth, all off Cincinnati starter Anthony DeSclafini. Saving the most difficult piece for last, he smacked a two-run triple off reliever Jesus Reyes in the sixth.
“It was pretty cool. The ball (on the triple) was in the air and you’re just thinking, ‘There’s no way did that just happen again,’” Yelich told Fox Sports Wisconsin.
And even more impressive, in Yelich’s first cycle this season, he went 6-for-6 in a 13-12 victory in 10 innings.
