DENVER — Troy Tulowitzki hit for the cycle and had a career-high seven RBIs to help Colorado beat the Chicago Cubs, 11-5, on Monday night.

Tulowitzki, who had a grand slam denied in the first video review at Coors Field, came to bat to lead off the seventh a triple shy of the franchise's fifth cycle and first in nine years. He laced a 3-and-2 pitch down the left-field line and slid headfirst into the bag before third baseman Jake Fox could corral the throw from left.

Tulowitzki hit his 21st homer in the first, singled in the second and doubled in the fourth in his first three at-bats. He added a two-run single in the eighth to finish with five hits.

Tulowitzki had a chance at more RBIs, but a review of his fly ball in the second inning went against him.
