Nolan Arenado went 3-for-5 with two homers and four RBI in the Rockies' 11-10 win over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Arenado contributed two-run shots off Robbie Ray in the first and fifth innings tonight. He has 12 homers and 30 RBI in his last 25 games and 25 homers and 72 RBI for the season. While his RBI pace wasn't up to his usual standards the first couple of months -- partly because the Rockies weren't putting as many men on for him as they typically do -- he now seems like the clear favorite to lead the NL in RBI for the third time in four years.

Wade Davis didn't pitch Friday against the Diamondbacks because of an illness.

Adam Ottavino got the ninth in his place and notched a save despite committing an error and allowing an unearned run. Davis should be ready to resume closing in a day or two.
Jul 21 - 2:54 AM

Robbie Ray surrendered five runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings Friday against the Rockies.

Ray gave up a pair of homers, bringing his total allowed to seven in 20 innings this month. As many batters as he walks, he can't afford to keep getting bitten by the long ball. He still has some mixed league value, but he's not the pitcher he was last year.
Jul 21 - 2:52 AM

Archie Bradley gave up six runs in the seventh to take a blown save and a loss Friday against the Rockies.

Bradley entered this one with a 1.97 ERA and hadn't allowed more than two runs in any of his previous 47 appearances this year. He walked three tonight, matching his total from his previous 18 appearances combined, and he gave up a grand slam to Raimel Tapia as the big blow. The outing was bad enough to push his ERA all of the way up to 3.11.
Jul 21 - 2:50 AM

Raimel Tapia delivered a pinch-hit grand slam in the seventh inning Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Tapia picked quite a time for his third major league home run, punctuating a six-run rally in what ended up being an 11-10 victory. Tapia might as well get some starts against right-handers as long as he's up. He's 4-for-14 in limited action since being called up on June 30. He's better than Gerardo Parra defensively and perhaps offensively as well.
Jul 21 - 2:48 AM

David Peralta went 4-for-5 with two doubles and three runs scored versus the Rockies on Friday.

No RBI, unfortunately. Not from the leadoff spot. Peralta has been a solid at the top of the order this year, but he's been more valuable for fantasy purposes while hitting in the middle of the order. He's totaled 51 runs+RBI in 49 games leading off, compared to 44 runs+RBI in 30 games hitting fourth and fifth.
Jul 21 - 2:45 AM

A.J. Pollock had five hits in a losing cause Friday against the Rockies.

Pollock doubled, stole a base and scored three times in the 11-10 game. It's always possible another injury is right around the corner, but he's been on the NL's best players when he's been able to take the field this year. His OPS stands at .955 through 53 games.
Jul 21 - 2:42 AM

Ketel Marte finished 3-for-5 with a triple and four RBI against the Rockies on Friday.

It's the first career four-RBI game for Marte. He had a really rough first two months, but he's batting .281 with eight homers, five triples and nine doubles in 135 at-bats since the beginning of June. That's good for a .600 slugging percentage (he was at .309 through the end of May).
