It's Blackmon's eighth multihit game in his last nine starts, a stretch that has pushed his average from .269 up to .292. He's even getting the job done on the road right now, and the steals have given his value quite the boost. He's just four off his 2014 total.

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-5 with four RBI in Sunday's 11-3 win over the Braves.

He's now recorded back-to-back three-hit games and four straight games with multiple hits. The strong close to the first half of the season brings his overall slash mark to .291/.360/.463 and he's smacked 11 homers while driving in an even 40 runs for the year. Plus, 23 steals.
