Pablo SandovalBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Call it a Kung Fu Cycle -- Pablo Sandoval became the first Giant to hit for the cycle since Fred Lewis did it in 2007.

Sandoval hit a two-run homer in the first inning off of Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin before singling in the second. He doubled in the fifth and then completed the cycle with a triple in the sixth inning. 

Sandoval did have a little help for the triple, as his fly to right was just beyond the outstretched Carlos Gonzalez, who then ran into the wall. Sandoval was rounding first when the ball bounced away from Gonzalez and Sandoval motored into third and then had a head-first slide into third.

Sandoval now has 20 home runs, 25 doubles and two triples on the season, despite missing 40 games with a broken hamate bone in his hand.

Sandoval is the 26th Giants and 10th San Francisco Giant to hit for the cycle.

Keep Torres and Huff on bench, keep Cody in CF and let the rooks (Belt and Pill) play depending on matchups play 1B. Same @ SS w/ Craw & Cabrera.
