Nats’ Turner hits for cycle

Washington shortstop Trea Turner hit for the cycle for the second time in his career on Tuesday, lighting up the Colorado Rockies in the Nationals’ 11-1 Major League Baseball win. Turner became the 26th major leaguer to hit for the cycle — recording a single, double, triple and home run in the same game — multiple times. And he became just the third player to achieve the feat twice against the same team, having done it against the Rockies at Coors Field back in April of 2017. Turner led off the bottom of the first inning with a home run, singled in the second and tripled leading off the fifth — all against Colorado starter Peter Lambert. After grounding into a double play in the sixth, he completed the cycle with a run-scoring double off Jairo Diaz in the Nationals’ eight-run seventh. The game marked the 19th cycle game the Rockies have been involved in, but all the previous ones came at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Turner’s leadoff homer in the first was the ninth of his career.
