With a triple in the seventh inning against the Colorado Rockies, Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner has become the third Nationals player ever to hit for the cycle, and the second player across Major League Baseball to accomplish the feat this season.

Turner's hot night started in the first when he singled off Rockies starter German Marquez. An inning later, he doubled in his next at-bat, before homering in the sixth off Jordan Lyles.

Turner joins Brad Wilkerson and Cristian Guzman to pull off the elusive accomplishment as members of the Nationals. When including the team's time as the Montreal Expos from 1969-2004, Turner's cycle is still just the ninth in franchise history.

San Diego Padres first baseman Wil Myers was the first to hit for the cycle this season. His feat came April 10, also against the Rockies.
