Wil Myers has put himself in the San Diego Padres' record books by completing the cycle Monday night.

Per Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune, he joins Matt Kemp as the only players in franchise history to accomplish the feat.ย 

Asย ESPN Stats and Infoย noted, the second cycle comes 217 games after Kemp's. Before that, the franchise went 7,443 games without one.

Myers singled in the first inning, doubled in a run in the third, hit a solo home run in the sixth and then finished it off with a triple in the eighth inning. The Padres' Twitter account captured the four hits:

Nick Groke of theย Denver Postย provided an interesting note about the history of cycles at Coors Field:

Coors Field averages a cycle every 18 months or so. 15 total in 24-plus seasons. John Mabry hit the first, nobody has done it twice.

Myers is off to an outstanding start in 2017, with his batting average up to .382 after his 4-for-4 start against the Colorado Rockies. He also now has three home runs in eight games.
