Eddie Rosario hits for cycle, seeing only 5 pitches

- Eddie Rosario knew he had history off the crack of the bat.

Upon making contact on a first-pitch curveball in the top of the ninth inning, Rosario raised his right hand in the air before the ball touched grass. His Braves teammates began celebrating, requesting the ball upon the play’s completion. Rosario had singled, which meant he had completed the cycle.

Rosario’s feat, combined with Max Fried’s seven scoreless innings, were the keys to the Braves’ 3-0 win over the Giants on Sunday afternoon at Oracle Park, a pair of performances that were as special as they were substantial in aiding Atlanta’s quest for the National League East title. The Braves currently have a two-game lead over the Phillies.

Freddie the 1st Brave in history to cycle twice

As the Braves continue to strengthen their place atop the National League East standings, Freddie Freeman is creating reason to wonder if he might end up winning a second straight NL MVP Award.

Freeman strengthened his resume as he hit for the cycle in Wednesday night’s game against the Marlins at loanDepot park. The veteran first baseman became the first Braves player to hit for the cycle multiple times.

Freeman secured the cycle when he homered off Marlins right-hander Luís Madero in the sixth inning. He doubled in the first and tripled during a four-run fourth. His fifth-inning single put him a home run shy of the Braves’ first cycle since he produced one on June 15, 2016, in a win over the Reds.

Freeman joined Trea Turner and Jake Cronenworth as the only players to hit for the cycle this season.
