Nolan Arenado completes cycle with walk-off homer

September 21 2016 Colorado Rockies Infielder Nolan Arenado rounds the bases following a grand slam homerun during a regular season Major League Baseball game between the Colorado Rockies and the visiting St. Louis Cardinals at Coors Field in Denver

Arenado's cycle was also the 17th in Coors Field history, which ties Fenway Park for the most cycles in an active ballpark, according to ESPN.

Colorado Rockies' Nolan Arenado celebrates as his three-run, walkoff home run clears the fence off San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Mark Melancon in the ninth inning of a baseball game, Sunday, June 18, 2017, in Denver.

Rockies reliever Jake McGee came on in the ninth but issued a one-out walk to Gorkys Hernandez. 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.

Trevor Story and Pat Valaika went deep in the seventh to give Colorado a 3-2 edge after Brandon Crawford's two-run homer in the fifth put the Giants ahead. LeMahieu had already singled out to the right to allow Raimel Tapia to score.

The Rockies have won five in a row and at 46-26, they hold the best record in the National League.

DIAMONDBACKS 5, PHILLIES 4, (10) Rey Fuentes hit his first major league home run in the 10th inning, lifting visiting Arizona over Philadelphia.

Securing a cycle with a #walkoff home run?

Valaika connected on Blach's first-pitch fastball and is 7-for-21 with four RBIs as a pinch hitter this season. Rockies pitchers gave up two of those three other cycles (Myers, Turner).

Arenado became the first player to finish a cycle with a walk-off home run since his teammate, Carlos Gonzalez, in 2010. The homer was Crawford's sixth and came on a 2-1 fastball from Chatwood that registered 95 miles per hour but was in an ideal spot for Crawford, just above his belt and over the plate.

Making a insane scene crazier, Arenado was left bloodied by the wild celebration. Blackmon was on third base when Arenado hit his game-winning home run.

It was his second game-ending homer in the majors and the eighth cycle in club history.

Arenado is hitting.295/.348/.566 with 25 doubles, three triples, 15 homers and 55 RBI this season, filling the stat sheet as always.

NOTES: Rockies RHP Carlos Estevez was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque and struck out the one batter he faced in the ninth.
