DENVER — The red-hot Colorado Rockies have moved to the top of this week’s MLB power rankings.

The Rockies have been on a roll this season with the best record in the National League West at 46-26 and have won five straight games.

MLB.com notes the Rockies have gone “5-1 in consecutive series with last year’s World Series teams, and, most recently, they swept the Giants in a four-game set at home.”

After the Rockies are the Washington Nationals (42-28), Houston Astros (47-24), Los Angeles Dodgers (45-26) and Boston Red Sox (39-31).

The recognition comes after Nolan Arenado completed his first career major league cycle with a walk-off home run against the Giants at Coors Field on Sunday.
