Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Cavan Biggio became only the third Blue Jays player in franchise history on Tuesday night to hit for the cycle. Biggio had a single, double, triple, and home run in an 8-5 Blue Jays win over the Baltimore Orioles.
Cavan Biggio struck out in the first inning off of Orioles starting pitcher Chandler Shepherd. Then he hit a two-run home run in the third inning with two out off of Shepherd, which scored Bo Bichette and put the Blue Jays up 3-2. Biggio’s next at bat came in the sixth inning when he had a leadoff single to right field off of Orioles relief pitcher Richard Bleier. Biggio then doubled to right field with one out in the top of the eighth inning off of Orioles relief pitcher Shawn Armstrong and scored on a sacrifice fly off of Lourdes Gurriel to tie the baseball game at four runs apiece. Biggio’s final hit was a triple in the ninth inning off of Orioles relief pitcher Mychal Givens, which scored Danny Jansen and Bichette, and put the Blue Jays up 7-4.
The other two Blue Jays with a cycle were Kelly Gruber and Jeff Frye. Gruber hit for the cycle in a 15-8 Blue Jays win over the Kansas City Royals on April 16, 1989, and Frye hit for the cycle in an 11-3 Blue Jays win over the Texas Rangers on August 17, 2001.
