From ESPN - July 15, 2017

Cody Bellinger legged out a leadoff triple in the seventh inning on Saturday against the Miami Marlins to become the first Dodgers rookie ever to hit for the cycle.

Bellinger got a single in the first, a two-run home run in the third and an RBI double in the fourth, before tripling to deep right-center in the seventh. His triple off Nick Wittgren barely cleared the glove of right fielder Giancarlo Stanton, who tried to making a running, backhanded catch.
