An article by posted on April 27, 2012

Scott Hairston strokes a double in the sixth inning to become 10th player in Mets history to hit for cycle.

 

Mets outfielder Scott Hairston has just hit for the cycle tonight in Colorado. He is the 10th Mets player to record a cycle in team history and the first to accomplish the feat since Jose Reyes did it on June 21, 2006 against the Cincinnati Reds.

Hairston started things off with a single in the second inning, a home run in the fourth, a triple in the fifth inning and finally a double in the top of the sixth inning.

Congratulations to Scott!
