St. Louis Cardinals star Nolan Arenado hits for 2nd career cycle in loss to Philadelphia Phillies

Darick Hall’s tiebreaking home run was his third homer since being called up, and Rhys Hoskins went deep to add an insurance run, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 5-3 win over Nolan Arenado and the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night.

The Phillies victory came despite Arenado hitting for the cycle, the second of his career and the 17th in Cardinals history. He had an RBI triple in the first, a two-run homer in the third, doubled in the sixth and was credited with a single in the eighth after his hard-hit grounder caromed off third baseman Matt Vierling’s glove.

“It hasn’t hit me yet because the game didn’t turn out the way we wanted,” Arenado said. “Obviously it’s a rare thing, a special thing. I just thank God I was able to do it today.”

Eduardo Escobar first Met to hit for cycle in 10 years

Escobar singled in the first inning, doubled in the fourth, homered in the eighth and tripled in the ninth, becoming the first Mets player since Scott Hairston in 2012 to hit for a cycle and the first player from any club to do so at Petco Park.

“It’s unbelievable,” said Escobar, who finished 4-for-5 with six RBIs in the Mets’ 11-5 win over the Padres. “It’s hard, hitting the cycle at this level. Today is a special night for me.”

For Escobar, the night included an emotional fist pump at third base, a hug from manager Buck Showalter in the dugout and a bath of ice water during his postgame interview. Perhaps the most universally beloved Met, Escobar often takes his teammates out for meals on the road and is at the center of many team bonding activities within the clubhouse walls. So when Escobar motored into third base without a throw, the visiting dugout exploded into whoops and hollers.

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.
