Padres first baseman Wil Myers hit for the cycle on Monday night against the Rockies at Coors Field. He singled in the first inning, hit an RBI double in the third, hit a solo home run to lead off the sixth, and completed the cycle with a leadoff triple in the eighth.

Myers is the second player in Padres history to hit for the cycle. The other was Matt Kemp on August 14, 2015 against the Rockies, also at Coors Field.

John Jaso, on September 28 last season with the Pirates against the Cubs, was the last player to hit for the cycle in the majors. Three players in total — Freddie Freeman and Rajai Davis were the others — accomplished the feat last season.

After Monday’s performance, Myers is hitting .382/.382/.794 with three home runs and seven RBI in 34 plate appearances this season.

Orioles CEO, brother agree to dismiss legal dispute

Baltimore Orioles CEO John Angelos and his brother Lou have agreed to end their fight over a lawsuit in which Lou accused John of seizing control of the team in defiance of their father Peter’s wishes.

Lou Angelos sued John last year, claiming John took control of the Orioles at his expense. Georgia Angelos, their mother, also was named as a defendant.

In a Friday court filing in the case, John, Lou, Georgia and Peter Angelos called on “all claims, including all counterclaims and defenses, asserted therein be dismissed with prejudice in their entirety.”

“The Parties also withdraw and terminate all pending motions submitted in these actions,” the filing said.

Peter Angelos became the Orioles’ owner in 1993, but his public role has diminished in recent years and he turned 93 last year. According to the suit, he had surgery after his aortic valve failed in 2017.

Lou Angelos accused John of trying to take control of Peter Angelos’ assets and manipulating Georgia Angelos. The lawsuit was one of a handful of off-field issues looming over the Orioles this offseason. The team also has a lease at Camden Yards that expires at the end of the year.
