Johnson hits for cycle against San Francisco

1 hour, 43 minutes ago

PHOENIX (AP)—Kelly Johnson(notes) of the Arizona Diamondbacks became the third player this season to hit for the cycle with an eighth-inning leadoff single against the San Francisco Giants on Friday night.

He hit a solo home run in the first, doubled in the fifth and tripled in two runs in the sixth. He clinched the cycle, to the cheers of what was left of the crowd, with a line drive to right field on an 0-1 pitch from right-hander Sergio Romo(notes).

Johnson joined Bengie Molina(notes) of the Texas Rangers and Jody Gerut(notes) of the Milwaukee Brewers as players to hit for the cycle this season. It was the fourth cycle by an Arizona player in the franchise’s 13-year history.

Johnson reached base a fifth time when he was hit by a pitch in the third.
