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.
