Default Nolan Arenado Hits For The Cycle In Rockies Win

Nolan Arenado completes cycle with game-winning homer

DENVER -- With one dramatic swing, Nolan Arenado gave the Colorado Rockies a thrilling victory and finished off his rare feat at the plate.

Arenado completed the cycle with a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Rockies stunned the San Francisco Giants by rallying for a 7-5 win Sunday.

Arenado hit the first pitch he saw from All-Star closer Mark Melancon (1-2) into the left-field seats to cap a four-game sweep. The slugger was mobbed at home plate by teammates, with a frenzied sellout crowd chanting "MVP! MVP!"

"It's probably one of the best moments in my career," Arenado said. "I've hit some big homers, but by far the best, obviously, for the cycle. I've never done it. I feel like I've been kind of close, but I've always needed a triple and I ain't getting that. Today is a great day."

Arenado became the fifth player in major league history to complete the cycle by hitting a game-ending home run, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The last to accomplish the feat was teammate Carlos Gonzalez, who did it on July 31, 2010, against the Chicago Cubs.
