Milwaukee Brewers’ Christian Yelich becomes sixth player in MLB history to hit for three cycles in career

The Milwaukee Brewers’ Christian Yelich joined an exclusive club Wednesday, hitting for the third cycle of his career during a 14-11 loss to the Cincinnati Reds.

Yelich’s three career cycles tie him with five other players for the MLB lead. Trea Turner was the most recent player to accomplish the feat, doing so on his birthday last season when he was with the Washington Nationals.

All three of Yelich’s cycles have come against the Reds, who have allowed 20 cycles in their history, second most to the St. Louis Cardinals (24) all time. Yelich, 30, is the first player to hit three cycles against a single team.

Yelich, who was the Brewers’ designated hitter on Wednesday, tripled in the top of the ninth inning to complete his latest cycle after hitting a ground-rule double in the top of the first, a 372-foot home run in the top of the third and a single in the top of the fifth. He finished the game 4-for-5 with three RBIs and two runs scored.
