Padres appealing to get first cycle in franchise history

The Padres want to correct an error in their Medica records.

The Padres, somewhat famously, do not have a cycle in franchise history. The Marlins are the other team without a cycle, but the Padres have been around for 45 years. On Wednesday, Tommy Medica was a single away from the cycle in the ninth inning, but he came up short. Oh, well. Next time.

Unless ...

The play in question:


Error. But I feel bad for Medica because that was certainly hit hard enough to be a hit. Still, it's an error. Not as far as the Padres are concerned, though. They want that cycle so bad, they're willing to get it through the magic of bureaucracy. I can't wait to see the bobblehead commemorating this one.
