Baseball Almanac Top Quote

" Bobby Thomson is remembered for his home run trot around the bases that gave the Giants the 1951 pennant. Robby Thompson also had four bases to remember Friday night - but they were all second base, as he became the first player in major-league history to be caught stealing four times in a game [ box ]. 'It was a rough night on the bases. I wanted to get into the record book, but not like that,' said the rookie second baseman, who also had three singles and a sacrifice fly and drove in two runs to help the San Francisco Giants defeat the Cincinnati Reds 7-6 in 12 innings and hold onto first place in the National League West." - The Associated Press (Rome News-Tribune. June 29, 1986. Page 10-B) [ Caught Stealing Records ]

On April 22, 1991 , Robby Thompson tripled in the first inning, belted a homer in the third, singled in the sixth and doubled in the ninth to complete the cycle. It was the first cycle for the San Francisco Giants since Chris Speier completed his cycle on July 9, 1988 , and the first in a losing effort (for the Giants ) since Jeffrey Leonard completed his cycle on June 27, 1985 . Thompson said after the game, "I've been taking extra batting practice to help myself (with his .146 average at the time). The cycle is very satisfying even though it came in a loss. It just happened it was my night. The loss took a little of the excitement away."
