Marlins Cycle Alert

Hermida bat           UPDATE: Hermida lined out to second in the seventh inning and bounced into a double play in the ninth.

            With a single, double and home run in his first three at bats this afternoon, Jeremy Hermida needs a triple to become the first Marlin to hit for the cycle. Hermida has six career triples, including one earlier this season in Atlanta.

             Hermida, who is hitting fifth today, has made the most of his hits. He drove in a first-inning run with his single and hit his home run off the Subway sign in deep right with two men aboard.

             The Marlins, Padres and Rays are the only three existing major league clubs that have never had a player hit for the cycle.
