Hitting for the Cycle: Popular These Days

Stud. Muffin.Minnesota Twins designated hitter Jason Kubel hit for the cycle -- highlighted by a grand slam -- to cap a dramatic seven-run rally in the bottom of the eighth inning of his team's 11-9 victory over the Los Angeles Angels Friday night.

As Bert Blyleven always says, you should never leave early.

Kubel hit an RBI double in the first before he singled in the third, tripled in the sixth and smoked the grand salami in the eighth. Well done.

Just the ninth Twin to ever accomplish the feat, Kubel's marks the third cycle to go down in just five days. First it was Orlando Hudson showing off on Monday before Ian Kinsler .

So, who's gonna hit one this Sunday?
