On April 27,2012 Scott Hairston started the game in left field for the Mets against the Rockies and it was a surprising game for Scott and for the team. Scott became the 10th Met in history to hit for the cycle since Jose Reyes in 2006. But the game later became a rocky 5th inning as the Colorado Rockies scored 11 runs in the inning. For more on that see Rockies Rocked Mets with 18.
Scott got 10 total bases with 4 RBI's in the game. But the Mets would lose 9 to 18.
