They’re only in the seventh inning out in Colorado, but Scott Hairston has already hit for the cycle.
Hairston singled in the third, hit a solo homer in the fourth, connected for an RBI triple in the fifth and then hit a two-run double in the sixth. It’s the first cycle of his career and the 10th cycle in Mets’ history. The last Met to do it was Jose Reyes on June 21, 2006.
Hairston’s cycle was somewhat overshadowed by the Rockies plating 11 runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, thanks to four Mets’ errors. The big inning fell one shy of the Rockies’ franchise record (July 30, 2010 against the Cubs) while the 11 runs allowed tied a franchise record for the Mets. Carlos Gonzalez drove in five runs in the frame, via a three-run homer and a two-run single, establishing a new club record. He has six RBI on the night so far.
So yeah, pretty boring game, really.
UPDATE: Hairston finished the day 4-for-5 with a homer, four RBI and three runs scored, but the Rockies routed the Mets 18-9.
