Nolan Arenado completes cycle with walk-off homer (Video)

The Colorado Rockies had one run home with runners at the corners and one out when Arenado stepped in against Giants closer Mark Melancon.

"I was ready first pitch and I was just trying to get the ball to the outfield, really", Arenado said. In other words, the Rockies are going to make some noise this year, and Arenado sees people taking notice: "The fans and the people of Denver are starting to get a hint that we're for real". He became only the sixth player in baseball history to hit a walk-off homer with a cycle. It was the eighth cycle completed in Rockies' franchise history and the second to ever come via walk-off home run, as Arenado's teammate Carlos Gonzalez did it back in 2010. He began the game with a first-inning triple, singled in the fourth and then hit an RBI double off Giants starter Ty Blach in the sixth. San Francisco's five-game slide, during which it has been outscored 40-21, has dropped the club 18 1/2 games behind first-place Colorado, and it has the second-most road losses in the majors (26).

The reduced the Giants' lead to 5-4 before Arenado's blast ended it.

NOTES: Rockies RHP Carlos Estevez was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque and struck out the one batter he faced in the ninth. He issued a one-out walk to Gorkys Hernandez before Pence connected on an 0-1 fastball clocked at 95.9 miles per hour to put the Giants ahead 4-3. Rockies RHP Chad Bettis threw 15-20 fastballs during a bullpen session, continuing his comeback from treatment for testicular cancer.

Those were extra-base hits Nos. So the Rockies headed to the bottom half facing a 5-3 deficit.
