Hitting For The Cycle Is Hard

Aubrey Huff hits for the cycle.
Aubrey Huff became the first Baltimore Orioles player to hit for the cycle Friday night against the Los Angeles Angels, since the great Cal Ripken did so in 1984.

Not only that, it was the first cycle ever hit by the O's at home and the first ever in Camden Yards history.

Hall of Famer is the only other Orioles player besides Ripken and Huff to achieve the feat.

Huff joins the Giants' Fred Lewis and Oakland's Mark Ellis as the third big leaguer to hit for the cycle this season.

The lefty infielder tripled in the second inning, doubled in the fourth, hit a three-run homer in the fifth and singled in the seventh. He left for a pinch-runner after going 4-for-4 with three RBIs and three runs scored.

Huff is batting .263 with 5 homers and 35 RBIs, nearing the halfway point in the season.
