Red Sox utilityman Brock Holt hits for cycle
Tuesday June 16th, 2015

Boston Red Sox utility man Brock Holt hit for the cycle on Tuesday against the Atlanta Braves.

It was the first cycle of the 2015 season and the first time a Red Sox player did it since John Valentin in 1996.

Holt doubled in the bottom of the first inning, singled in the fifth, hit a solo home run in the seventh and tripled to center in the eighth. His final line for the game, which Boston won 9–4, was 4-for-5 with two runs, two RBIs and 10 total bases.

Michael Cuddyer was the last player to accomplish the feat, doing so last August as a member of the Colorado Rockies. He was the only player to hit for the cycle in 2014.

According to Baseball Almanac, Holt is only the sixth player to hit for the cycle during an interleague game. 

On the season, Holt is hitting .309 with two home runs, 15 RBIs and a .400 on-base percentage. Tuesday was his first four-hit game since April 11.
