Outfielder Austin Hays becomes sixth player in Baltimore Orioles history to hit for cycle

Four at-bats, four hits, one unforgettable cycle in just six innings of work.

“Beyond unbelievable. An epic night,” Baltimore manager Brandon Hyde said after Austin Hays became the sixth player in Orioles history to hit for the cycle.

Hays completed the feat with a sixth-inning double in the midst of a steady shower and shortly before play was halted for good in Baltimore’s 7-0 victory over the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night.

Hays pulled it off while batting leadoff in place of Cedric Mullins, who was given the night off. Facing Nationals lefty Patrick Corbin, Hays got an infield single in the first inning, hit a solo shot in the third and tripled in the fourth.

That seemingly left the 26-year-old outfielder plenty of time to tack on the double that would enable him to join Hall of Fame members Brooks Robinson and Cal Ripken Jr. in the Orioles record book.

But a heavy rain threatened to end the game in the middle of the fifth.

They've certainly had lots of candidates with the appropriate stat profile to have done it: Pinson, Rose, Morgan, Larkin. Eric Davis too, but he actually did it.
