Wil Myers hits for cycle in Padres win

Wil Myers hits for cycle in Padres win

He's just the second player in Padres history to record a single, double, triple, and home run in the same game, joining former outfielder Matt Kemp.

"I nearly fell. I was trying too hard, I think". "If I'd have fell I still would have tried for it".

San Diego catcher Luis Torrens made his first start, but didn't find out he was in the lineup until he arrived at Coors Field on Monday. The ball shot past left fielder Gerardo Parra, causing Padres manager Andy Green to get animated in dugout.

"His presence in our clubhouse gives all three of those guys confidence they can succeed", Green said.

As Steve Staude analyzed in excruciating detail after Mike Trout accomplished the feat in 2013, hitting for the cycle is a legitimate statistical rarity. This will be Freeland's first career game against the Padres. Padres 1B Wil Myers had fallen a triple shy of the cycle seven times before hitting a triple in the eighth inning Monday to complete his first cycle.

Jarred Cosart started for San Diego in place of Trevor Cahill, who went on the 10-day disabled list Sunday. His fWAR of 3.8 was eighth-best among qualified MLB first basemen last season, and his OPS+ of 113 (league average is 100) helped him make his first All-Star team.

Rockies reliever Carlos Estevez threw a strike.

Myers came in with a.323 batting average and five home runs in 16 games at Coors Field. It's cool. I don't think any of us is anxious when somebody else goes in.

Senzatela was given a game ball from his performance and said when he returns to his native Venezuela, he would put that keepsake at the grave of his mother, Nidya, who died of stomach cancer on July 24. Margot has hit three home runs in nine games this year after hitting a total of six in 124 games with Triple-A El Paso last year. He left with the score tied 2-2.

"That's what happens in baseball", Chatwood said. Senzatela has a 1.50 ERA after two starts.

Senzatela gave up two hits through five innings. Their other two wins were by two runs. Kansas City lost a home opener for the first time since 2012.

He then led off the sixth inning, taking Chatwood deep for a home run to the opposite field, making him 3-for-3 against the Colorado start on the night.

Myers came close to the cycle before, though. "To see somebody get it, someone like Wil, kind of the cornerstone of your franchise, it's a lot of fun to watch". While that may or may not continue, one thing for sure is that the Rockies bats will wake up sooner than later. Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado has hit safely in each of the team's eight games. OF David Dahl (ribs) is playing catch, throwing and running.

Weaver (0-1) took the loss against the Dodgers last Thursday, allowing four runs on five hits while walking three and striking out two over five innings. It caused a bouncing throw from Diaz, and Wolters was able to reach first base safely.
