Denver,  CO  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Michael Cuddyer  hit for  the cycle as the 
Colorado  Rockies defeated  the Cincinnati Reds, 10-5, to sweep a doubleheader 
on Sunday. 

Cuddyer,  who  was reinstated off the  disabled list after missing his last 60 
games with a left shoulder fracture, became the seventh Colorado player to hit 
for the cycle and the first since Carlos Gonzalez on July 31, 2010 against the 
Chicago Cubs.

three  RBI and two  runs scored and Josh Rutledge posted three hits and a pair 
of runs scored for the Rockies, who have won three of their last four games.

the eighth to go ahead.

after Colorado had been down 9-5 entering the ninth. 

Adam Ottavino (1-4) tossed a scoreless eighth to notch the win. 

Ryan  Ludwick scacked  a two-run homer for Cincinnati, which has dropped seven 
of  its last  nine games.  Carlos Contreras  (0-1) allowed  five runs  -- four 
earned -- over 1 1/3 innings to garner the loss. 

Charlie  Blackmon walked  and Rutledge  singled  to begin  the seventh  before 
Dickerson's  base hit brought home Blackmon.Cuddyer singled to load the bases. 
Nolan  Arenado  then bounced one to  third, which allowed Rutledge to score as 
Ramon  Santiago stepped  on the base for  a force out, and Cuddyer came across 
when Satiago's throw to first got away to tie it. 

With  the bases  loaded and two away  in the eighth, Dickerson reached out and 
slapped a double to right-center to push across a pair. Cuddyer lined a double 
down  the left-field line  to bring home two more and Stubbs hit an RBI single 
later in the frame to give Colorado a 10-5 advantage. 

The  Reds  opened the scoring  in the first on  Jay Bruce's RBI groundout, but 
Colorado got the run back in the fifth on a Brandon Barnes leadoff homer. 

Cincinnati  went back  ahead with three runs in the sixth. Ludwick cracked his 
two-run  shot to left-center and Brayan Pena later added an RBI double to give 
the Reds a 4-1 lead. 

Cuddyer's  leadoff blast  in the home half  made it 4-2, but Cincy got another 
run in the seventh via a Santiago sacrifice fly.
