Way To Go Cargo!

8/1/10

           Here’s the Wikipedia definition of “Hitting for the cycle”

In baseball, a player hits for the cycle when he hits a single, a double, a triple, and a home run in the same game, though not necessarily in that order. Collecting the hits in that order is known as a natural cycle.congratulations_4.jpg

joins Dante Bichette, Troy Tulowitzki, Todd Helton, Neifi Perez and Mike Lansing as the sixth Rockies player to hit for the cycle.

The best part was Cargo did it with style hitting a game winning walkoff home run.

The last player to hit for the cycle at Coors Field was Troy Tulowitzki on August 10, 2009 against the Cubs. Funny, Gorzelanny was the starting pitcher for both games.

                 Here’s a link to my entry from that Cubs series a year ago:

           Pinella throws a fit, talks sh-it and that’s it.  

That entry is the day before Tulo hits for the cycle and it’s the game where Lou Pinella gets tossed.

That was beyond amazing, wasn’t it?!! I’m guessing you weren’t there, since I didn’t see ya in the post-game party. :D Wish I had been! Carlos = Roxstar!!

Hey D,
Aaaaaaaaargh! I missed seeing Carlos hit for the cycle because I was out of town on vacation. Man, I would so have luved to see that. Really glad to see the team turn things back around. On to the Post-Season! :)

what a great underrated player! And a walk off homer to top it all off is just… well you can’t write it any better than that!
