Jody Gerut Hits for the Cycle!

Okay, I'll be one of the first to report this one the web: Minutes ago, Milwaukee Brewer Jody Gerut hit a double to become the first Brewer since 2004 (Chad Moeller) to hit for the cycle. With two out in the top of the ninth inning and up by a ton of runs, Gerut got his third chance for a two-base hit. It took a nice effort by a few players in front of him to even get this at bat, but he took advantage by lacing a double to center, becoming only the sixth Brewer to achieve the feat, joining the aforementioned Moeller, Mike Hegan, Charlie Moore, Robin Yount, and Paul Molitor.

This is the first Brewers cycle I have actually witnessed (on TV, of course) and it was a fun thing to see happen. It was also the first of the 2010 season. Who knows how many will occur this year?
