Pirates prospect Nick Gonzales hits for the cycle in Triple-A

As if Nick Gonzales couldn’t get any hotter at the plate, he did so last night for Triple-A Indianapolis by hitting for the cycle in a 19-1 thrashing of Rochester.

Gonzales’ night began in the bottom of the first as he hit a 450-foot moonshot to tie the game at one. After drawing a walk in the fourth, Gonzales doubled AND tripled in an eight-run sixth inning. He then completed the checklist with a single in the eighth.

It was the first cycle for Indianapolis since Jacob Stallings and Kevin Newman both accomplished the feat against Lehigh Valley in 2018.
