Aaron Hill Joins Rare Company With Two Cycles In A Month (!)

Very few players ever hit for the cycle in their career. There are plenty of guys in the Hall of Fame who never achieved the cycle. It requires not only four hits on one game -- something seldom achieved in itself -- but also the speed and power needed to hit for a single, double, triple and home run.

Aaron Hill has now hit for the cycle twice in the month of June. And it isn't even over yet!

Facing the Brewers on Friday night, Hill completed the cycle in just the sixth inning.

Hill got his game started with a ground-rule double in the first inning. He singled in the third. Hill's big blast came in the fourth when he sent a ball over the left field wall to make the score 8-1 in the D-backs' favor.

With a runner on first and two outs, Hill came to the plate against Livan Hernandez. He sent a ball deep to center field, allowing him to dive into third to complete the triple.

Pretty awesome.

There may be a total of five or six cycles hit this season, and Aaron Hill already has two of them.

The last player to hit for the cycle twice in a month: Babe Herman, who did it in 1932.
