Gindl hits for cycle in Albuquerque
Gotta love Caleb Gindl’s honesty. He needed a single for the cycle on Sunday night, and said, “there was no way I was going to walk.” Gindl got his hit, and completed Nashville’s first cycle in seven years — and third in its 33-year history — with a two-out single to center field in the Sounds’ 9-5 road win over the Albuquerque Isotopes.
Playing right field and batting seventh spot, Gindl became the first member of the Sounds to accomplish the feat since J.R. House on May 21, 2004 against Sacramento. Tike Redman hit for the first cycle in Nashville history on June 30, 2001.
Gindl also totaled 10 bases the hard way — against four different pitchers.
“I was seeing the ball well,” he deadpanned. “I knew I probably wouldn’t see one of the guys twice.”
