Rockies complete Giant sweep in grand fashion - MLB Schedule/Standings

DENVER, Col. (AP) — It was a great Father's Day for the Nolan Arenado and the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies still lead the NL West by one game over the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers after all three teams won.

Arenado was serenaded with chants of "MVP! MVP!" after capping his first career cycle with a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to lift the Rockies to their fifth straight win, 7-5 over San Francisco. Colorado blew a 3-2 lead in the ninth and trailed 5-3 until DJ Lemahieu hit an RBI single and scored on Arenado's 15th homer of the season. Arenado finished with five RBIs on the day.

Trevor Story and Pat Valaika also homered in helping the Rockies beat the Giants for the ninth straight time.

The outcome leaves Colorado at 46-26, tops in the National League.

Elsewhere in the majors:

— Arizona kept pace with the Rockies as Rey Fuentes hit his first major league home run, a 10th-inning blast that sent the Diamondbacks past the Phillies, 5-4. Paul Goldschmidt and Chris Owings hit first-inning homers for the Diamondbacks, who trailed 4-3 in the ninth until Gregor Blanco slapped an RBI single.

— Logan Forsythe and Justin Turner homered while the Dodgers built an 8-1 lead in an 8-7 win at Cincinnati. Kenta Maeda pitched five strong innings and drove in two runs as Los Angeles won for the ninth time in 10 games. Kike Hernandez made a spectacular game-saving catch to wrap up the Reds' ninth consecutive loss.

— Jimmy Nelson struck out 10 and scattered six hits in his first career complete game to pitch Milwaukee past San Diego, 2-1. Nelson improved to 5-3, lowered his ERA to 3.39 and helped the Brewers maintain their 2 ½-game lead over the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. Milwaukee trailed 1-0 until Hernan Perez and Manny Pina homered in the sixth.

— The Cubs were 7-1 winners against Pittsburgh as Anthony Rizzo fell a triple shy of the cycle. Rizzo's two-run homer in the seventh was his team-high 16th of the season. Willson Contreras drove in three runs with a pair of doubles to back John Lackey, who combined with three relievers on a three-hitter.

— Jacob deGrom belted his first career homer and followed Tuesday's complete game with an eight-inning masterpiece to lead the Mets past the Nationals, 5-1. DeGrom allowed an unearned run and just three singles to help the Mets avoid a four-game sweep at home. Michael Conforto drove in two runs and T.J. Rivera went 4-for-4 as New York cut the Nats' lead in the NL East to 10 ½ games over the Mets and Braves.

— Atlanta beat Miami, 5-4 on Brandon Phillips' RBI single in the bottom of the ninth. It was the second straight game-ending hit for Phillips, whose run-scoring single in the 10th won Saturday's game. Nick Markakis hit a two-run single for the Braves.

— The New York Yankees concluded a 1-6 road trip with their sixth consecutive loss, 4-3 at Oakland. The Athletics did their scoring in the third inning as Chad Pinder tied it with a two-run double and Khris Davis followed with a two-run blast. The A's completed a four-game sweep following a first-pitch temperature of 90 degrees, the warmest for an A's home game since 2008.

— The Yankees now share first place in the AL East with Boston after Xander Bogaerts homered and had three RBIs in the Red Sox's 6-5 triumph over Houston. The Bosox scored four times in the sixth as Bogaerts belted a two-run shot and Jacki Bradley Jr. added a two-run double that put Boston ahead 5-2. Jake Marisnick, Carlos Correa and George Springer homered for the Astros, whose lead in the AL West remains 11 ½ games over Texas.

— Danny Valencia's two-run homer capped a four-run first against Yu Darvish before the Mariners finished up a 7-3 victory against the Rangers. Kyle Seager drove in three runs with three doubles as Seattle ended an eight-game losing streak in Texas. Christian Bergman held the Rangers to two runs and four hits over 5 2/3s after yielding nine runs in his previous start in Minnesota.

— Edwin Encarnacion homered twice and the Indians pushed their lead in the AL Central to two games over Minnesota by completing a four-game sweep of the Twins, 5-2. Encarnacion was 11-for-18 with six runs scored and four RBIs in the series. Cleveland also got seven strong innings from Trevor Bauer, who gave up two runs and four hits with eight strikeouts over seven innings.

— Jason Vargas picked up his major league-leading 10th win and Salvador Perez smacked a three-run homer as the Royals whipped the Angels, 7-3. Vargas gave up three runs and eight hits in six innings as the Royals won for the seventh time in eight games. Kansas City third baseman Mike Moustakas doubled home three runs, giving him 19 RBIs this month.

— Logan Morrison homered twice and Steven Souza Jr. hit his first career grand slam as the Rays clobbered the Tigers, 9-1 to split a four-game series. Derek Norris and Evan Longoria also went deep to back Jake Faria, who struck out a career-high nine and limited Detroit to a run and six hits in seven innings. Faria joined Jeremy Hellickson as the only Tampa Bay hurlers to win their first three big league games.

— Ubaldo Jimenez was sharp in the Orioles' 8-5 win over the Cardinals, allowing two runs and four hits over seven innings. Mark Trumbo homered for the second straight day, one of 10 hit by Baltimore in the three-game series. Seth Smith, Trey Mancini and Welington Castillo also went deep for the Birds on Sunday.

— The White Sox had won nine of 11 before Kendrys Morales and Russell Martin slammed two-run homers to help Toronto beat Chicago for the first time in seven tries, 7-3. The Blue Jays trailed until Martin went deep in the sixth and Ryan Goins tripled home the go-ahead run later in the inning. J.A. Happ picked up his first home win of the season, giving up three runs and eight hits over 6 2/3 innings.
