Jorge Polanco hits for the cycle

Minnesota Twins shortstop Jorge Polanco went 5-for-5 while hitting for the cycle during Friday night's loss to Philadelphia.

Polanco hit a triple off the outfield wall in the first inning, singled in the third, homered in the fifth and doubled in the seventh against Phillies pitching to complete the cycle. Polanco became the 11th Twins player to hit for the cycle and the first since 2009.

To complete his perfect night, Polanco singled again in the 9th inning.

The Twins lost to the Phillies 10-4, but Polanco certainly had a night to remember.
