DENVER (AP) - Carlos Gonzalez hit a game-ending home run leading off the ninth inning to become the sixth player in Colorado Rockies history to hit for the cycle.
Gonzalez, who singled, tripled and doubled in his first three at-bats, hit the first pitch from Chicago Cubs reliever Sean Marshall in the ninth to give Colorado a 5-4 win. It was his 21st homer of the year.
The last Rockies player to hit for the cycle was Troy Tulowitzki, who did it Aug. 10, 2009, against the Cubs.
