Torii Hunter narrowly missed his chance at getting the coveted cycle during Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Washington Nationals.
The Tigers ended up winning the game 11-1, but Hunter was just a triple away from reaching one of his career dreams.
For those who don’t know, a cycle is accomplished when a player hits a single, double, triple and home run all in the same game.
Following the game, Fox Sports Detroit reporter Shannon Hogan was interviewing Hunter when she told him to enjoy his day off Thursday — the ball club won’t see one again until August 19.
And his response was a little bit surprising:
Hogan’s reaction is classic. She hides her slightly mortified face from the camera as she simply says “Oooh! Well… that’s what Torii Hunter’s doing.”
Interesting, Torii. Interesting.
