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.
