 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -Oakland's Mark Ellis became the first player to hit for the cycle against the Boston Red Sox since 1978 on Monday night, completing his first career cycle with a 10th-inning broken-bat single.
Ellis, who got the 17th cycle in A's history dating back to 1901, hit a two-run triple in the second inning, followed by a solo homer in the fourth. Ellis doubled in the sixth, then grounded into a fielder's choice in the eighth.
But the A's blew a two-run lead in the ninth, forcing extra innings - and Ellis' broken-bat bloop against J.C. Romero landed in center field, completing the first extra-inning cycle in the majors since the Chicago White Sox's Chris Singleton did it in 1999.
The last Oakland player to hit for the cycle was Eric Byrnes on June 29, 2003, against San Francisco. Just six players in Oakland history have hit for the cycle - and Ellis was just the second player to do it at the Coliseum.
No player had hit for the cycle against the Red Sox since Andre Thornton on April 22, 1978.
