This day in baseball: Robinson hits for the cycle

On 29 August 1948, Jackie Robinson hit for the cycle, and did so in reverse order.  He started off the feat with a home run in the top of the first, tripled in the fourth inning, doubled in the sixth, and singled in the eighth.  Through all this, Robinson drove in two RBIs, scored three times, and stole a base.  With his help, the Brooklyn Dodgers defeated the Cardinals 12-7 at Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis.
