All @arios51 needed to hit for the cycle was a triple and he got it! http://t.co/u3Ub0T5Bwl — MLB (@MLB) September 24, 2013 Pretty impressive for Alex Rios to pick up the cycle on his first four at bats. He finished his night 4-for-4 with three runs and four RBI. He joins Mike Trout and Brandon Barnes as the only players to hit for the cycle this season. Just an all around nice fantasy night if you had any Texas Ranger on the roster. The Houston Astros tend to bring out the best in players. The Astros have struck out nine times through six innings against Derek Holland. — Brian McTaggart (@brianmctaggart) September 24, 2013 There are 112 active pitchers with more wins than Derek Holland‘s 49, but just 16 with more shutouts than his seven. — Matthew Pouliot (@matthewpouliot) September 24, 2013 A complete game shutout with nine strikeouts for Derek Holland as Texas embarrassed Houston 12-0. Speaking of scoring a lot of runs… the A’s just keep on rolling. A’s are up to 49 runs scored over their last 5 games. — Jane Lee (@JaneMLB) September 24, 2013 Jed Lowrie and Brandon Moss combined for two home runs and five RBI in a 10-5 win over the Angels. In case you weren’t depressed enough about this season, Howie Kendrick will collect all the RBI tonight so fans say “This is Howie do it…” — Not Arte Moreno (@NotArteMoreno) September 24, 2013 Howie Kendrick had the second best fantasy night for hitters with four ribbies, a home run and a triple.                     He does it again! @b_ham_3 steals another base and is now a perfect 13-for-13: http://t.co/K7pr8re1Nc — MLB (@MLB) September 24, 2013 Are you even surprised anymore? If you haven’t seen Billy Hamilton steal by now – watch the clip from @MLB and then go pick him up on your fantasy team. He really shouldn’t be there as he should be in your lineup regardless of whether he starts or not. Billy Hamilton this year: 16 plate appearances, 13 SB. Does he wind up with more PA or steals? I’ll take SBs in the pool. How bout you? — Jayson Stark (@jaysonst) September 24, 2013 No two ways about it..Billy Hamilton freaks people out. — Brian Kenny (@MrBrianKenny) September 24, 2013 A fair assessment. Hamilton with another pinch-run stolen base. Kids unreal.
