As the Phillies were following their 14-inning affair by taking on Zack Greinke and the Diamondbacks Tuesday night, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs were a part of some unfortunate history.
The Phils' Triple A club lost, 12-5, to the Indianapolis Indians (Pirates' affiliate) and watched as not one, but two players hit for the cycle.
Shortstop Kevin Newman, the Pirates' first-round pick in 2015, went 5 for 5 out of the leadoff spot with an extra double for good measure.

Catcher Jacob Stallings, who's had three cups of coffee with the Pirates the last three seasons, added a cycle of his own out of the cleanup spot.
Lefty Cole Irvin (10-4, 3.00) started the game and allowed six runs in five innings.
Newman completed his cycle with a homer off Jake Thompson in the eighth inning. Stallings came up two batters later needing a triple and got it.
They're calling it the bi-cycle, and in case you're wondering, no pair of teammates in MLB history has ever done this in the same game.
