Candy Maldonado hit for the cycle as part of a 21-hit attack that helped the San Francisco Giants overcome a six-run deficit and beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 10-7, Monday night at St. Louis.
Chili Davis added a three-run homer for the Giants, who lost third baseman Chris Brown in the seventh inning when the left side of Brown's jaw was broken by a pitch from Cardinal pitcher Danny Cox.
Brown was taken to Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, and a Giant spokesman said a decision as to his status would be made today. The former Crenshaw High star faces probable surgery.
Maldonado became the first Giant to hit for the cycle since Jeffrey Leonard did it June 22, 1985, against Cincinnati. Maldonado tripled in the third inning, homered in the seventh, singled in the eighth and doubled in the ninth.
