GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. In the start, Harrison Musgrave had his best outing of the season, going three innings, giving up two hits, one run and striking out three.

The offensive tone of the game was set by the Rockies in the second inning, as they brought in seven runs, including a two-run single from Forrest Wall.

Logan Norris came in as the first reliever and pitched two innings of one-hit ball. He picks up the win.

But the talk of the night was Regis Jesuit grad Max George, who became the first Grand Junction Rockies player in franchise history to hit for the cycle, when he singled to left-center.

It's one of the most difficult feats in baseball, and to put that in perspective, since the Colorado Rockies franchise was founded in 1993, only five players have hit for the cycle, and only one since 2000.

The Rockies win big 13-2 and improve to 15-11 overall. Game two with Helena on Sunday is scheduled for 4:05 PM.
