colorado-rockiesDENVER (AP) — Michael Cuddyer hit for the cycle, including a two-run double in Colorado’s five-run eighth inning, and the Rockies rallied again to beat the Cincinnati Reds 10-5 to complete a doubleheader sweep Sunday night.

Drew Stubbs finished off Colorado’s five-run ninth inning with a three-run homer off J.J. Hoover, sending the Rockies to a 10-9 victory in the first game.

Cuddyer, reinstated from the disabled list earlier in the day after missing 60 games with a left shoulder fracture, tripled in the first, homered in the fifth and singled in the seventh to become the seventh Rockies player to hit for the cycle and first since Carlos Gonzalez on July 31, 2010 against the Chicago Cubs.

It was his second career cycle.

Adam Ottavino (1-4) picked up the win in relief and reliever Carlos Contreras (0-1) took the loss.
