It’s the third cycle in Washington franchise history.

Trea Turner flirted with the cycle a time or two as a rookie, and with his talents, it was really just a matter of when he’d finally accomplish the feat. That came Tuesday night in Colorado. I don’t think it’ll end up being the last time he manages this.

Turner finished the day 4-6 with seven runs batted in. The Nats needed all the help they could get, too, what with allowing 12 runs themselves.

Turner’s most impressive hit of the bunch was his opposite field home run in the sixth inning. Yeah, it is Coors Field, but nonetheless it’s indicative of how he’s improved since his time at NC State.

After his big night, Turner is now hitting .289/.308/.526 on the season.
