Aaron Hill makes history with his second cycle of the season

Here’s something you don’t see every day. Or week. Or month. Or year. Or decade. Well, you get the point.

After hitting for the cycle back on June 18, Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill did it again tonight against the Brewers in Milwaukee. That’s right, two cycles in the space of 12 days. And the Padres and Marlins are still waiting for their first one.

Incredibly, Hill is the first player to get two cycles in the same season since Babe Herman did it with the Brooklyn Robins in 1931. That’s 81 years of baseball, folks.

Hill had a ground rule double in the top of the first inning, a single in the third, a two-run homer in the fourth and a triple in the sixth to complete the feat. By the way, that double gave him 1,000 hits for his career. Now that’s a special night.

    Meanwhile, in Toronto, Kelly Johnson goes 0-for-infinity.

      Yeah, but no K’s tonight…for a change.

      Hill is a classic example of a guy who needed the proverbial change of scenery. Glad to see him doing well.

    I could hit a cycle against the Brewers this year. They suck, and I’m a fan.

    You want a cycle? I can get you a cycle by 3:00.

    I drafted Hill with my last pick in fantasy & dropped him a month into the season. After he hit for cycle the 1st time I was kicking myself. Now that he’s done it twice, I’m on suicide watch.

    Hill’s is a true riches to rags to riches to rags to riches story.

    Congrats to Aaron Hill. Too bad Goldschmidt couldn’t get one because of the fan, he missed one some 4-5 days back when all he needed was a single.
