Seattle Mariners first baseman John Olerud "hit for the cycle" for the second time in his career today, against the San Diego Padres. The Mariners beat the Padres 9-2.
Hitting for the cycle consists of a single, double, triple and home run hit by a single player in a game. Olerud is the third Mariner in team history to hit for the cycle. This rare baseball feat was previously accomplished by Mariners Jay Buhner on June 23, 1993 and Alex Rodriguez on June 5, 1997.
Olerud's previous hit for the cycle was achieved when he played for the New York Mets, on September 11, 1997 against the Montreal Expos. The Mets won 9-5.
