DENVER — Nolan Arenado completed his first career major league cycle in a thrilling way to give the Rockies a 7-5 win over the San Francisco Giants at Coors Field on Sunday.
The Rockies had a 3-2 lead going into the ninth inning, but the Giants scored three runs to take a 5-3 lead.
Arenado completed the cycle with a three-run homer to help the Rockies stun the Giants and complete a four-game sweep.
The Rockies third baseman was mobbed at home plate by teammates as the crowd chanted “MVP. MVP.”
“I love these fans, man. This is what it’s all about. We keep fighting, we don’t quit,” Arenado said.
It was the fourth cycle of the season and only the eighth Rockies history. It was the first walk-off homer to end a cycle since Carlos Gonzales did it in 2010.
Arenado’s cycle was also the 17th in Coors Field history, which ties Fenway Park for the most in an active ballpark, according to ESPN.
The Rockies have the best record in the National League at 46-26. The team has won five straight and nine in a row against the Giants.
