White Sox's Abreu hits for cycle against Giants

Updated: 

Jose Abreu hit the sixth cycle in Chicago White Sox history as he starred against the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.

Needing just a triple to complete the feat, Abreu sent one to right-center field in the eighth inning, and then cruised around the bases for a cycle.

It was just the 11th triple of his career.

Abreu got his home run out of the way early, sending a towering shot into the seats in the first inning. He added a double, single and a strikeout to his box score before the clutch triple that scored two runs.

The White Sox won the game 13-1.

Abreu is the first White Sox player to hit for the cycle since Jose Valentin accomplished the feat on April 27, 2000.
