Watch Rockies’ Nolan Arenado complete cycle with walk-off homer

Nolan Arenado is having quite a season and on Sunday, he had his best moment yet this year.

The Colorado Rockies third baseman hit a walk-off bomb to beat the Giants and with that homer, completed the cycle.

Arenado crushed the three-run jack to left off of Giants closer Mark Melancon, giving the Rockies a 7-5 victory over their division rivals. 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.

It was the 17th cycle hit at Coors Field, tying Fenway Park for the most cycles in an active ballpark. Arenado is the fourth player to hit for the cycle this season, following Tampa Bay’s Wil Myers, Washington’s Trea Turner and Texas’ Carlos Gomez.

Arenado, 26, is batting .299/.352/.573 with 15 homers and 55 RBI. For his heroics, he wound up with …. a bloody face.
