June 23, 1984: Willie McGee hits for the cycle in the ‘Ryne Sandberg game’


On June 23, 1984, Willie McGee became the first Cardinal since Lou Brock in 1975 to hit for the cycle, driving in six runs and scoring three times. Nonetheless, the game will forever be known as "the Ryne Sandberg game" after the Cubs second baseman went 5-for-6 with two homers and seven RBIs as the Cubs rallied from a pair of six-run deficits.
