Rockies' Arenado caps off cycle in game-winning fashion

Rockies' Arenado caps off cycle in game-winning fashion”

METS 5, NATIONALS 1: Jacob deGrom hit his first major league home run and held a bruising Washington lineup to three singles for eight dominant innings, giving NY a win at home that prevented a four-game sweep.

Arenado went 4-for-5 in the game with 4 RBI, and the home run gave him 15 homers on the year and 55 total RBI.

The wild celebration that awaited Arenado at home plate left the two-time all-star with a gnarly cut above his left eye and his jersey a bloody, Gatorade-soaked mess. I feel like I've been kind of close but I've always needed a triple and I ain't getting that.

It should not come as a surprise, then, that Pence had played in 1,426 games over 11 major league seasons and had just 20 appearances as a pinch hitter.

Sitting first place in the NL West at 46-26, the Rockies swept the Giants and will carry a five-game winning streak into their game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday. "I'm not going to let my ego get in the way here".

"Once I got out there, everything felt good and felt normal", said Chapman, who had concerns about being rusty since he hadn't been as sharp locating his pitches. It was the second consecutive game-ending hit for Phillips, whose run-scoring single in the 10th gave Atlanta an 8-7 victory Saturday.

Melancon has not recorded a save since May 27. He looked pretty good to me today. A blooper into center field, another one that we couldn't quite get to and an eight-hopper to center.

Carlos Estevez (4-0), called up from the minors before the game, struck out one batter in the ninth for the win. It was Arenado's fourth career walk-off hit, and third against the Giants alone.

Arenado is the first player to hit a walk-off homer to finish off the cycle since Carlos Gonzalez did it on July 31, 2010, who ironically also did it for the Rockies. The Giants added a run when Joe Panik singled, took second base on a botched pickoff play and scored on Brandon Crawford's double.
