New York Mets' outfielder Scott Hairston hit for the cycle in his first four at-bats against the Colorado Rockies in Coors Field on Friday night, becoming the tenth Met in history to do so.

Hairston started his cycle with a single in the second inning, and he hit a homer in the fourth off Rockies' starter Drew Pomeranz. He tripled in the fifth against Esmil Rogers, and then doubled in the sixth inning against Josh Roenicke.

The double wasn't a cheapy, either:


Statistically, it's about as rare for a team to have a player hit for the cycle as it is to have one pitch a no-hitter, which makes it somewhat quirky -- alanisly ironic -- that they've had ten cycles without a no-hitter in franchise history. On the flip side the Marlins haven't been around for 20 years, yet they have four no-hitters and no cycles. What a game! What a country!
