Of course he did

Joe Davis called it right “Of course he did” as Cody Bellinger added to his legendary season by hitting for the cycle in Miami tonight, and he did it the hard way, hitting a triple to complete the cycle.

I’m extremely pleased because he replaces Orlando Hudson as the last Dodger to hit for the cycle and while I have nothing against Hudson I don’t particularly like one year free agents holding Dodger records.

I enjoyed Wes Parker having the only cycle since 1970 until Hudson performed the feat in 2009 and have been waiting eight years for someone else to do the trick.

And of course, it was Cody Bellinger, the fastest Dodger on the team, who also happens to have the most power. A combination you just don’t find often, so it is a good bet that this will not be his last cycle. Considering the season he is having, he could do it again this year.

Cody could be fighting Puig for NL player of the week.

Joe Davis keeps giving us some nice cycle tidbits. Wes Parker was the first LAD to hit for the cyle and he did it against the Mets in 1970. The manager for the Mets was Gil Hodges who was the last Brooklyn Dodger to hit for the cycle.
