     DENVER (AP) - Rookie Raimel Tapia finished a single shy of the cycle, Charlie Blackmon lined a solo shot after it was announced he would participate in the All-Star Home Run Derby, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-3 on Monday night.
     Tapia's homer in the 6th broke a tie game as the Rockies returned home following a forgetful 1-8 trip. 
     Right-hander Jeff Hoffman (5-1) nearly collected as many hits at the plate (2) as he surrendered on the mound (4). The rookie went 7 effective innings, with his only hiccup back-to-back homers to Scooter Gennett and Joey Votto in the 6th. Hoffman's run-scoring double in the 2nd was his first major league RBI.
     Hoffman turned the ball over to the bullpen, where Jake McGee pitched the 8th before recently named All-Star Greg Holland threw a perfect 9th for his 27th save in 28 chances.
     Luis Castillo (0-1) struck out 8 in 5 2-3 innings of work, but was charged with all 5 Colorado runs and took the loss.
