Padres' Myers hits for cycle in 5-3 win over Rockies

Wil Myers's cycle in Colorado is the San Diego Padres's first since August, 2015

Wil Myers hit for the second cycle in San Diego Padres history on Monday in a 5-3 Major League Baseball victory over the Rockies in Colorado.

Myers singled in the first, doubled home a run in the third, homered in a three-run sixth and tripled in the eighth.

The other Padres cycle -- a player hitting a single, double, triple and home run in the same game -- was also accomplished at the Rockies' Coors Field, by Matt Kemp on August 14, 2015.

Myers's cycle was the eighth by a Rockies opponent at the hitter-friendly Coors Field and the 15th there overall.

Hunter Renfroe hit a two-run homer for the Padres, won for the third time in four games.

Myers's double gave San Diego a 1-0 lead in the third inning, scoring Manuel Margot.

His homer to right center field to open the sixth was followed by Renfroe's homer that put the Padres up 4-0.

Myers's triple in the eighth inning came off Rockies reliever Carlos Estevez. Estevez threw a strike before Myers fouled off another pitch. Down 0-2 in the count, he swung at an 87 mph slider that went through the gap at left center.

His triple soon led to the final padres run, when Yangervis Solarte followed with a sacrifice fly that scored Myers.
