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.

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.
