DENVER -- Michael Cuddyer returned from a long absence in a big way. Reinstated from the disabled list earlier in the day, Cuddyer hit for the cycle, including a two-run double in Colorados five-run eighth inning, and the Rockies rallied again to beat the Cincinnati Reds 10-5 in Game 2 to complete a doubleheader sweep Sunday night. Drew Stubbs finished off Colorados 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, who missed 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. "You dont set out to hit for the cycle, thats for sure," Cuddyer said. "Thats why I went down there (in the minors) for so long, to feel comfortable on the baseball field again. You never want to feel foreign on the field. I knew it was going to take a week or so to get that feel back, and today was a good day." Adam Ottavino (1-4) picked up the win in relief and reliever Carlos Contreras (0-1), who allowed five runs in 1 1-3 innings, took the loss. Ryan Ludwick had a two-run homer in the sixth off Yohan Flande to help the Reds take a 5-2 lead into the seventh. But the Rockies pulled even in their half of the seventh with the help of the Reds second error, which came with the bases loaded and one out after Colorado had pulled within two. Reds third baseman Ramon Santiago cleanly fielded Nolan Arenados hard RBI bouncer down the line and stepped on the bag for the force but his throw to first was wide and rolled onto the dirt track in foul territory, allowing two runners to cross the plate. That set the stage for another big finish by the Rockies. After Brandon Barnes and Charlie Culberson each singled with one out in the eighth, Manny Parra relieved Contreras, and Josh Rutledge beat out an infield single to load the bases with two outs. Corey Dickerson, who earlier extended his hitting streak to 12 games, and Cuddyer followed with succesive two-run doubles. "The first one got away from us and the second one got away from us," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "I know runs can score here in a hurry. We really did everything we could with our bullpen to get to the place where he had a chance to win that first game. And thats the one we should put away and we didnt. We had a three-man bullpen for Game 2 and it didnt work out." Cuddyer sent his drive down the third-base line and emphatically clapped his hands as he pulled into second base. It was his second career cycle. He also did it against Milwaukee on May 22, 2009, while with Minnesota. "Its good to see Cuddy out there and swinging like its midseason form," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "Big night for Cuddy." In the first game, the Reds carried a 9-5 lead into the ninth, but All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman walked four straight batters before he was replaced by Hoover. Pinch-hitter Wilin Rosario then hit a sacrifice fly to trim Cincinnatis lead to two. After Charlie Blackmon flied out, Stubbs drove a 1-0 pitch from Hoover (1-9) into the seats in left-centre for his 12th homer. It was Stubbs third career game-ending homer and first with the Rockies.

The light-heavyweight champion and number one ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world is on an 11-fight UFC winning streak, the longest in the history of the weight class. K. J. Wright Jersey . -- Kael Mouillierat scored three times and set up one more as the St.Ask anybody from the hardcore mixed martial arts fan to the guy on the corner barstool. Theyll all tell you its just about the coolest thing theyve ever seen in a cage. In the waning minutes of a title fight nearly three years ago, Anthony Pettis put his right foot on the fence, launched himself airborne and kicked Benson Henderson in the face, toppling him onto the canvas. In one sublime motion, Pettis lived every gravity-defying kinetic fantasy of every kid raised on video games, parkour and Jackie Chan movies -- and he won a championship belt, too. For the first time since Pettis landed whats now known as the Showtime Kick, hell be back in the cage with Henderson on Saturday night at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee at UFC 164. Both fighters realize their careers have been partly defined by that single moment of acrobatics, but neither fighter is thinking much about the past before a key bout for both mens futures. "Im not going to live off of it," Pettis said. "It happened. Were past it. Ive got to fight him again, and hes the champ. So even with that kick, Im still not the champ, so Ive got a lot to prove." Their long-anticipated rematch is headlining the first major card on the UFCs packed fall slate. Veteran heavyweight Frank Mir will take on Josh Barnett, who returns to the UFC after an 11-year absence, while featherweights Chad Mendes and Clay Guida also will meet. Pettis hometown crowd cant possibly expect something to top the Showtime Kick, but this bout means more than the lightweights first meeting. Henderson (18-2) is the UFCs 155-pound champion, while Pettis (16-2) is the only man to beat him in more than six years. But Pettis kick has lost none of its lustre in the time since that WEC bout in Phoenix, Hendersons hometown, in December 2010. One version of the highlight has nearly 5 million views on YouTube, and its a staple of MMA highlights packages. Even after 18 months as the UFCs lightweight champ, Henderson is still stung by his only defeat in his last 21 fights. Henderson wasnt knocked out by the kick with 65 seconds left in the final round, but it clearly swung an exciting, tight fight in favour of Pettis, who claimed the belt with a unanimous decision. "Anthony let it all out and landed a pretty cool kick," Henderson said. "And ever since, Ive been working to redeemm myself.dddddddddddd Beating up the next guy, the guy after that, beating up the guy after that, that was redeeming myself -- working past that one moment in my life." Henderson has excelled by becoming an effective points fighter, battering his opponents with flurries of less-than-fearsome strikes adding up to decision victories. Henderson hasnt stopped an opponent since April 2010, but he seized the UFC lightweight title from Frankie Edgar early last year and defended it three times -- twice by razor-thin split decisions over Edgar and Gilbert Melendez. He always knew Pettis was lurking in the background, waiting for a chance to repeat his spectacular win. The fighters are cordial and complimentary toward each other, but not friendly. "We have never sat down and discussed it," Henderson said of their last bout. "In my head, I knew that wed be facing off at some point in time again, so there wasnt a real big need for anything like that." Hendersons detractors are hoping Pettis is the antidote to the champions style. Pettis is a crowd-pleaser, with a taekwondo background and superlative striking skills. "Its not like I just won the (last) fight off of just one kick," Pettis said. "I put the work in the other rounds to be in that position. Ive got a lot to work for." Pettis might have won the lightweight belt before Henderson even got a chance to get his hands on it, if not for a debatable career choice. Unwilling to wait around for the next title shot after Edgar returned from an injury in 2011, Pettis accepted a bout against Guida, who upset him. Pettis has fought just three times since, winning twice by dramatic knockout, but also sitting out most of 2012 with injuries. Pettis would have been forced to wait even longer for his shot at Henderson, but challenger T.J. Grant pulled out of the matchup with a concussion last month. Pettis was contemplating a move down to challenge featherweight champion Jose Aldo, but he eagerly seized a second chance to take on Henderson in his hometown. "You cant blame me for trying to get a title shot," Pettis said. "Thats what its all about. Every fighter wants to be a champion, and I was right there. Ive been getting ready for a title shot since January, and its August now, so you cant blame me for trying."
