Indians outfielder Rajai Davis hit for the cycle against the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, but it wasn’t enough to propel his team to a win, as Cleveland had its 14-game winning streak snapped.

The Indians came into the game looking to extend their already franchise-record winning streak to 15, but gave up nine runs to the Blue Jays offense. Reliever Dan Otero was credited for the loss in the game, which was tied at 6–6 going into the eighth inning.

The loss is the first for Cleveland since June 15 against the Kansas City Royals.

Davis, however, was a bright spot for the Indians, becoming just the eighth player in franchise history to hit for the cycle.

The 35-year-old, who hit leadoff during the game, pulled off the rare reverse cycle, hitting a home run in the first inning, followed by a triple, double and a single.

He is the first Cleveland player to hit for the cycle since Travis Hafner in 2003, and just the second person to accomplish the feat this season.
