LAS VEGAS — What some players never accomplish, Vidalia native Jarrett Hoffpauir has done twice in two months.

Hoffpauir, playing for the Las Vegas 51s, the AAA affiliate for the Toronto Blue Jays, hit for the cycle in Friday night’s game against the Tacoma Rainiers.

Hoffpauir also hit for the cycle on April 25. The cycle has only been accomplished seven times in Las Vegas 51s history, and Hoffpauir has done it two of those times.

Hoffpauir got a triple in his first at bat Friday, followed by a single. He then hit a two-run home run in his third at bat and collected the cycle with a double in his fourth at bat.

Hoffpauir came into Friday’s game hitting .333 with seven home runs, 10 doubles and 34 RBIs.

He leads the team in both batting average and RBIs.
