Astros Minor League Recap: The Cycle!

The big story for last night lies with none other than Tommy Manzella!  Last year's opening day starter at shortstop is back in AAA this year after the trade for Clint Barmes and the decision to go with Angel Sanchez to start the year.  Well, after a hot start at the beginning of the year, he has cooled off a bit recently, except for last night.  Manzo did what every hitter dreams of, but few ever get the opportunity, to hit for the cycle!

Batting in the eight hole, he didn't ge this first at-bat until the second inning when he hit a double.  His next at-bat was in the fourth when he hit that most difficult triple and followed up with a single in the sixth inning.  Then, in the eighth inning, he came up for his fourth at-bat with just one hit left to go for the cycle.  The home run ball!  The home run was the perfect way to cap off his cycle. 

Congratulations to Tommy Manzella!  I really hope he gets another opportunity to play in the majors.
