Hill singled in the first inning, tripled in the third, doubled in the fifth and socked a solo home run in the seventh to complete the feat. He’s the second player to hit for the cycle this season, joining Mets’ outfielder Scott Hairston.
It was the fifth cycle in Diamondbacks’ history and the first since Kelly Johnson on July 23, 2010. Of course, Hill and Johnson were traded for each other last August.
On the strength of his 4-for-4 night at the plate, Hill is now hitting .284/.352/.475 with eight home runs, 28 RBI, six stolen bases and an .827 OPS through 64 games this season.
