Charlie Blackmon finished 2-for-3 with an RBI in Saturday's game against the Dodgers to push his batting average to .330.
It was the 68th multi-hit game of the season for Blackmon, who is closing in on the National League batting title. Teammate DJ LeMahieu (.348) won the title last season, and a Rockies player has won the NL batting title in three of the past four seasons. Oct 1 - 2:54 AM

Nolan Arenado went 3-for-5 with a solo homer against the Dodgers in a 9-1 rout Friday.

The homer gave Arenado his third straight 130-RBI season. Albert Pujols is the only other active player with three career 130-RBI campaigns. Of course, Coors Field plays a huge role in his RBI totals, but even with that helping hand, it takes excellence, consistency and durability to drive in 130 runs per year.

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-6 with three RBI and a run scored Wednesday in the Rockies' 15-9 defeat of the Marlins.

Blackmon hit RBI singles in the bottom of the second, bottom of the sixth, and bottom of the eighth as the Colorado offense exploded for 15 runs in the afternoon series finale at Coors Field. Blackmon now has 100 RBI on the season -- as a leadoff man. The 31-year-old center fielder is slashing .328/.397/.598 and has a case to be named the 2017 National League MVP.

Charlie Blackmon finished 1-for-2 with three walks and a run scored in Tuesday's victory against Miami.

Blackmon has tailed off a little over the past couple of weeks, going just 10-for-55 (.181) with eight RBI and 13 strikeouts since Sept. 9 to drop his average from .340 to .326. He remains three shy of 100 RBI for the season.

Charlie Blackmon crushed his 36th home run of the year as the Rockies topped the Padres 8-4 on Sunday afternoon in San Diego.

His solo shot came as part of a three-run uprising in the ninth inning. Blackmon finished the day 2-for-4 plus a walk and he scored three times. He's having an outstanding season at the dish, hitting .326/.394/.600 with 36 homers, 96 RBI and 13 stolen bases.
Sep 24 - 8:14 PM

Charlie Blackmon finished 2-for-4 with a double, a three-run home run and four RBI in Saturday's win against the Padres.

Blackmon needed a big game for his fantasy owners, as he entered just 1-for-18 over his past five games and he hadn't had a game with more than one RBI since Aug. 26. Still, it has been another banner year for Blackmon, who has 35 homers, 93 RBI and a sparkling 1.010 OPS.

Charlie Blackmon is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

It looks to be a routine day off. Ian Desmond will handle center field.
Sep 15 - 4:16 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-5 and hit his 33rd homer Monday as the Rockies edged the Giants 4-3.

Blackmon hit third yesterday, but all 33 of his homers this season have come from the leadoff spot. No one has ever hit 40 homers from the leadoff spot in a season, but Blackmon has a chance. Alfonso Soriano has the record, hitting 39 of his 46 homers in 2006 as a leadoff man. Soriano is also second on that list, with 38 in 2002, and tied for third with 35 in 2003 (the others with 35 were Bobby Bonds in 1973 and Brady Anderson in 1996).
Sep 4 - 7:16 PM

Charlie Blackmon is back in the leadoff spot Monday against the Giants.

Blackmon made a rare start out of the No. 3 spot on Sunday with Nolan Arenado out of the lineup. DJ LeMahieu hit leadoff on Sunday, but he'll slide down to the second spot on Monday.
Sep 4 - 1:04 PM

Charlie Blackmon clubbed his 32nd home run of the season on Wednesday afternoon against the Tigers.

It was a solo blast to center field in the bottom of the sixth inning. It was also the only run surrendered by Tigers starter Justin Verlander as Detroit went on to win 6-2. Blackmon is batting .339/.401/.622 in 131 games this season and will probably receive some votes in the National League MVP balloting.
Aug 30 - 6:20 PM

Charlie Blackmon (hamstring) is in the Rockies' lineup Saturday.

Blackmon had to be lifted from Friday's contest with some hamstring soreness, but it was more of a cramp. The Rockies have Pat Valaika getting a start over Carlos Gonzalez with the Braves throwing lefty Sean Newcomb.
Aug 26 - 4:23 PM

Charlie Blackmon homered and doubled twice Thursday against the Braves.

Nolan Arenado is still the Rockies' best player, but Blackmon has been their best hitter; he currently has the better OPS by 60 points. Arenado has 27 more RBI than the leadoff man, but Blackmon has 34 more runs scored and even one more homer (28 to 27) at the moment.
Aug 17 - 6:45 PM

Charlie Blackmon was a handful for the Marlins on Saturday, finishing 4-for-5 with two stolen bases and two runs scored in a loss.

All four of his hits were singles, the fourth time in the past eight games that the 31-year-old has collected three or more hits in a single contest. Perhaps more notable were the two steals -- it was the first time all year he swiped multiple bags in one game. Blackmon is now hitting .338/.394/.618 with 27 homers, 74 RBI, 11 steals and a league-leading 105 runs scored on the year.
Aug 13 - 12:20 AM

Charlie Blackmon had three hits -- including a go-ahead home run in the top of the 12th inning -- in Wednesday's win over the Indians.

Blackmon was retired in his first three trips to the dish, but he singled in the eighth, singled in the 10th and then took Zach McAllister deep to right-center field with two outs in the 12th for a game-winning dinger. He homered in both games in Cleveland and now has 10 longballs on the road this season versus 17 at home.
Aug 9 - 4:15 PM

Charlie Blackmon led off the game with a home run but his team fell to the Indians on Tuesday.

He went yard off starter Corey Kluber to begin the first inning. It was his only hit on a night when his squad could manage only three knocks in the whole game. Blackmon is having an MVP-caliber season, rocking a .330/.387/.611 triple slash with 26 home runs and 73 RBI. He leads the majors with 100 runs scored and has chipped in nine stolen bases as well.
