A number of MLB sluggers are off to hot starts this season, but no one would have expected which player would be the first to hit for the cycle in 2019.
Not only that, it’s unlikely that anyone would’ve predicted it would happen so quickly, given that Opening Day was just over a week ago. Early in the season, the weather is colder, and the ball doesn’t travel as far. Furthermore, most players haven’t hit their stride yet.
But not Jorge Polanco, as he was on fire in Friday’s game against the Phillies. Philadelphia could not get Polanco out, as he went 5-for-5 at the plate, and managed to hit for the cycle. Watch all his hits in the video below.
Polanco’s effort was extremely impressive, but even that couldn’t will the Twins to victory, as the Phillies jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back.
