DENVER — The Rockies’ Charlie Blackmon completed a cycle by hitting an RBI double in the eighth inning Sunday at Coors Field.

Blackmon doubled down the first-base line off Washington Nationals reliever Kyle McGowin.

It was the ninth cycle in the Rockies’ 26-season history and the first of Blackmon’s career.

Blackmon tripled in his first at-bat and homered into the right-field seats in the third inning. He beat out an infield single in the fourth while going 4 for 5 in the game.

Blackmon’s cycle was the first by a Rockies player since Nolan Arenado completed one by hitting a game-ending home run against the San Francisco Giants on June 18, 2017.
