Elly De La Cruz's Cycle Poster
Cincinnati rookie Elly De La Cruz became the youngest Major League Baseball player to hit for the cycle in 51 years as the Reds extended their win streak to 12 games with an 11-10 victory over the visiting Atlanta Braves on Friday night.
De La Cruz, 21, doubled to open the second inning, had a two-run homer in the third, a run-scoring single to center in the fifth and tripled in the sixth for his fourth RBI of the night. The last hit increased the Reds' lead to 11-7.
He became the youngest player to hit for the cycle since Houston's César Cedeño in 1972, according to ESPN Stats & Information. De La Cruz is also the third player since 1901 to hit for the cycle within his first 15 career games.
