Giants' Pablo Sandoval Hits For Cycle Against Colorado Rockies

The San Francisco Giants Pablo Sandoval has hit for the cycle in Thursday's game against the Colorado Rockies--and he needed just six innings to do it. He hit a two-run home run in the first inning, singled in the second inning, doubled to lead off the fifth inning and then tripled to right field in the sixth inning.

According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, this was the 10th cycle in Coors Field history and the first by a Giants hitter since 2007 when Fred Lewis did it at Coors Field. This is the 26th cycle hit by a Giants batter and the first of Sandoval's career.

The Giants control this game, 7-2, but poor defense by Thomas Field and Jordan Pacheco have hurt the Rockies, in particular. Carlos Gonzalez took an awkward hit into the wall on Sandoval's triple, but he remained in the game for the rest of the inning.
