Video: Watch Reds prospect Donald Lutz hit for the cycle
Prospect Donald Lutz could not be stopped Monday night .
Seen in the video above is the German-born slugger ripping a triple against Double-A Jacksonville to record the third cycle of his career. After lining out in his first at-bat, Lutz doubled in the second inning and then again in the fourth. In the eighth, Lutz led off the inning with a solo home run over the right field wall. And then he would cap off the cycle by tripling later on in the frame.
All in all, Lutz finished 5-for-6 with four runs scored and two RBI en route to the Blue Wahoos whipping Jacksonville by a tally of 17-1.
The cycle marked the first in Pensacola's short franchise history. Lutz previously achieved the feat with the Rookie-level GCL Reds in 2008 and Single-A Dayton in 2011.
