We’re not even through the first month of the 2017 MLB season, and we’ve already seen two cycles at Coors Field (which is of course the first stadium you’d guess for a cycle).

The first one came courtesy of the San Diego Padres’ Wil Myers (just the second in Padres history!), and the second cycle was provided by the Washington Nationals’ Trea Turner on Tuesday night.

And here’s a neat factoid: Turner and Myers were once involved in the same trade.

Needing a triple for the cycle, Turner got it on this bases-clearing triple down the right field line in the top of the seventh:

And he did so while looking like a ninja:


It’s the first Nationals cycle since 2008:

He also has seven RBI. I say has, as this game is still going on. It’s been a classic Coors Field slugfest, with the Nationals currently leading the Rockies 15-11 in the bottom of the eighth.

Update: The Nats won 15-12.
