Offense was alive and well on Friday at Coors Field as the Colorado Rockies exploded for 11 runs in the fifth inning and pounded the New York Mets, 18-9, in the opener of a three-game set.

The Rockies, who pounded out 19 hits in the game, were led by Carlos Gonzalez, who finished 3-for-6 with six RBI and a run scored. Ramon Hernandez crushed a grand slam, Troy Tulowitzki added a solo shot and Dexter Fowler clubbed a three-run homer.

Every player in the Rockies' starting lineup, including starter Drew Pomeranz had at least one hit, while Todd Helton and Jonathan Herrera each added an RBI for Colorado, which bounced back from a 5-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Thursday in a big way.

Matt Reynolds (3-0) gave up two hits and no runs in one inning of work to earn the win, while Manny Acosta (0-1) was tagged for seven runs -- four earned -- on five hits and two walks in just 1/3 of an inning to suffer the loss.

Scott Hairston hit for the cycle in just four at-bats, scored three times and knocked in four runs, Ruben Tejada had four hits and two runs scored, while Lucas Duda had two RBI for the Mets, who had a three-game winning streak snapped.

Hairston's cycle was the 10th in Mets franchise history and he became the first Met to hit for the cycle since Jose Reyes on June 21, 2006. Other Mets to accomplish the feat include: John Olerud in 1997, Keith Hernandez in 1985, Tommie Agee in 1970 and Jim Hickman, who hit the franchise's first cycle in 1963.

Hairston had just five hits in 29 at-bats this season entering Friday's game.
