Matt Kemp hits first Padres Cycle


This is the 2012 thread for the Padres, but I'm gonna post here as I just witnessed a historic event for the Padres franchise. Matt Kemp just hit the Padres first Cycle in Padres history. Mark this day (August 14, 2015) as the best day for a Padre fan that doesn't involve the World Series. I've been a Padre fan for pretty much my entire life and I had resigned myself to the idea that I would NEVER see anyone in a Padre uniform hit for the cycle. So, it took 7,444 games for a Padre player to get a Single, Double, Triple and a Home Run in one game. FINALLY I can cross this off my bucket list. All that's left for the Padres franchise is a No-Hitter and a Perfect Game. Wow....just....WOW! Way to go Matty!! To put this Cycle in perspective, our greatest player and hitter, Tony Gwynn had a a shot at a Cycle 22 times in his career and could never get that elusive hit. Bonus is that the Padres beat the Rockies tonight 9-5.
