1992 Dave Eiland hits his only big league home run in his first major league at-bat and becomes the first hurler to accomplish the feat which also allows a homer to the first batter he faced in the major leagues. In 1988, as a rookie for the Yankees, the Padres right-hander gave up a round-tripper to Paul Molitor, who was the first batter he faced in his big league debut.
1998 Trailing Arizona 4-2 at Qualcomm Stadium with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Steve Finley erases the two-run deficit with a walk-off grand slam. The Padres' center fielder, who will accomplish the feat again in 2004, hits the game-ending round-tripper off Felix Rodriguez.
2017 Wil Myers completes the second cycle in Padres’ history when he triples in the top of the 8th inning of team’s 5-3 victory over the Rockies at Coors Field. The 26 year-old first baseman joins Matt Kemp, who accomplished the feat two seasons ago after the franchise had gone 35 years without one.
