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.

Braves revamp outfield with deals for Jorge Soler, Eddie Rosario, Adam Duvall

The Atlanta Braves entered Friday with a 51-52 record on the season, putting them four games back in the National League East and eight back in the wild-card hunt. Despite already acquiring Joc Pederson this month as a means of trying to fill the Ronald Acuña Jr. void, Atlanta swung a trio of deals ahead of the trade deadline to improve their outfield depth chart: first adding the injured Eddie Rosario in a swap with Cleveland that will send reserve Pablo Sandoval to the Midwest, then reacquiring Adam Duvall from the Miami Marlins in for catcher Alex Jackson. The Braves later beat the buzzer to add Jorge Soler from the Kansas City Royals in exchange for righty Kasey Kalich, per ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

The Braves also acquired right-handed reliever Richard Rodriguez from the Pittsburgh Pirates, again per Passan.
