Interesting that Gregg Jefferies charted three of the six games, all within the span of eleven months covering two seasons. The Mets won all six of these games. On two occasions, a Met collected the requisite four hits for a cycle, but substituted an extra-base hit for the single. In fact, in the 8/18/1964 game, Joe Christopher collected two triples to go along with the double and homerun, but nary a single.

245 times a Met has come up a triple short of a cycle.
69 times a Met has come up a homerun short of a cycle.
26 times a Met has come up a double short of a cycle.
