Hitting for the cycle is an impressive feat — one that fans don’t get to see very often.

Seeing it twice in the same night is nearly unheard of.

Yet that’s exactly what fans at Victory Field in Indianapolis got to witness on Tuesday night when a pair of Indianapolis Indians players both hit a single, double, triple and home run in their 12-5 win over the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs.

Second baseman Kevin Newman got things started on Tuesday, going a perfect 5-of-5 from the plate. He hit a double in the first and sixth innings, a triple in the third and then hit a home run in the eighth inning to complete the cycle.


Catcher Jacob Stallings, who went 4-of-5 from the plate, was just three batters behind him.

Stallings hit a double in the first, hit his home run in the fourth, singled in the sixth and then completed his cycle with a triple in the eighth inning — his first of the season.


The Indians, who are the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Triple-A affiliate, had 18 total hits in the win — half of which came from Stallings and Newman alone.

This marks the second time that a pair of teammates have hit for the cycle in a minor league game this season, though that has never been done in a Major League game.
