Twins' Polanco records 2019's 1st cycle, and earliest ever by date
His other three hits came off Phillies starter Nick Pivetta. Polanco tripled in the first inning, lined a single in the third, and cracked a solo homer to lead off the fifth.
The 25-year-old is the 11th Twins player to hit for the cycle since the franchise moved to Minnesota in 1961, and the first since Michael Cuddyer in 2009.
Despite Polanco's historic evening, Philadelphia held a 7-4 lead through six-and-a-half innings.
