Reds’ Elly De La Cruz hits for the cycle in six innings – UnlistedNews

Elly De La Cruz has been betting on the Cincinnati Reds since making his MLB debut earlier this month. Now, he is making a different story.

De La Cruz hit for the cycle in Cincinnati’s home win Friday night against the Atlanta Braves … in six innings.

De La Cruz doubled in the bottom of the second inning, hit a two-run home run to right field in the third, recorded an RBI single in the fifth, and then hit an RBI triple in the sixth.

Elly De La Cruz becomes the first Reds player since 1989 to hit for the cycle after a triple in the sixth inning.

The 21-year-old De La Cruz became the first Reds player to hit for the cycle since Eric Davis on June 2, 1989. Meanwhile, franchise royalty Joey Votto hit two home runs before De La Cruz Cruz put the finishing touches on his cycle in the sixth inning. De La Cruz finished the game 4 of 5.

The rookie infielder entered Friday with a total of two home runs, six RBIs and six stolen bases with a .321/.387/.536 batting line. Cincinnati is 41-35, good for first place in the NL Central, and has won its last 12 games.
