Wil Myers Records First Cycle Of 2017

Rookie outfielder Hunter Renfroe followed that up with a two-run homer to push the lead to 4-0.

The Padres (3-4) dropped three of four at Dodger Stadium to open the season but began their home season by winning two of three from the San Francisco Giants. But who cares. Wil Myers hit for the cycle last night! It marked the first time in Rockies history that they won a game with exactly three solo homers.

The San Diego slugger couldn't hear his manager because he was yelling, too.

"I know she's watching me", Senzatela said. "Inside I wasn't screaming out loud".

Michael Brantley delivered a two-run RBI double in the 10th inning to give the Cleveland Indians a 2-1 win over the Chicago White Sox in their first home game since last year's dramatic Game 7 of the World Series.

Coincidentally, the only other cycle in Padres history also happened at Coors Field.

DJ LeMahieu and Mark Reynolds homered for the Rockies. He yielded four runs on seven hits in 5 1/3 innings Monday. It's cool. I don't think any of us is anxious when somebody else goes in. "If they don't score any runs, it doesn't matter how you do it".

As far as cycles go, doing it in four plate appearances and finishing it with a triple is about as flawless as any cycle can get. He almost stumbled sprinting around second base but easily made it to third to complete the cycle. "If I'd have fell I still would have tried for it".

"Didn't get it up enough", Chatwood said of the fastball to Myers, "and he barreled it". He gave up the homers to Gonzalez and Blackmon and left the game in favor of pinch hitter Sardinas. Charlie Blackmon answered San Diego's run in the sixth inning with a solo shot of his own off Weaver.

Padres: Green said C Hector Sanchez (concussion) is progressing well and is on track to come off the disabled list when eligible.

There have been 15 cycles hit at Coors Field, in which the visiting team has 8.

"It was a pretty good pitch", Green said.

On Monday night, Wil Myers matched him. "I will communicate that with that in the future". The Padres' first baseman made it 2-0 in the sixth with a leadoff homer off Chatwood. Weaver allowed four runs in five innings during his Padres debut Thursday.

The Colorado Rockies look to stay hot and build on what's been an impressive 6-3 start to the season. He tossed five shutout innings in his major league debut at Milwaukee on Thursday. He came away with a no-decision, however, because Colorado's bats remain dormant thus far in April.
