Charlie Blackmon hit a pair of two-run homers off Zach Eflin as the Rockies beat Phillies 8-2 on Tuesday.
Blackmon struggled on the road in the first month of the year, but he's 14-for-36 with three homers and 13 RBI in eight games during the current trip. It helps that he's faced the Twins, Reds and Phillies in those games, but it's still nice to see. May 23 - 10:17 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-5 with an RBI single, a run scored and a stolen base Saturday against the Reds.

The multi-hit game was Blackmon's sixth in his last seven games, raising his average 24 points in a little over a week. With Saturday's good game, the 30-year-old is now hitting .320/.361/.596 with nine homers, 32 RBI and 31 runs scored. Perhaps most surprising is that he's stolen just three bases this year, as his base-stealing prowess has been in steady decline since 2015.

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in the Rockies' 7-3 victory over the Twins on Tuesday.

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-4 with a titanic solo home run in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

Blackmon fell a homer short of the cycle on Saturday. Let us just call it a cycle deferred, as he absolutely teed off against a cement-mixer of a slider by J.J. Hoover with one out in the seventh inning on Sunday, crushing it 446 feet to right field and giving the Rockies a 5-0 lead in the process. The slugger has picked up multiple hits in six of his last 10 games and is working to a beautiful .313/.354/.619 triple-slash with eight homers, 27 RBI and a solitary steal for the season as a whole.

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI triple and two runs scored against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Blackmon finished a home run shy of the cycle. He's now got nine doubles and four triples to go with seven homers on the year, and his 26 RBI rank near the top of the National League. Some might have worried about the 30-year-old's slow start out of the blocks, but he's up to .300/.343/.592 overall after Saturday's outburst.

On Sunday, he teed off on a Jeff Samardzija pitch to lead off the game, whacking it an estimated 415 feet to boost the Rockies to an early 1-0 lead. They would add to Blackmon's contribution courtesy of a two-run double by Nolan Arenado later in the frame. Blackmon is hitting .232/.283/.446 with three homers and nine RBI through the first 14 games of the season.
Apr 16 - 7:07 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and three total RBI in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

He is looking to build on a 2016 body of work in which he boasted a .324/.381/.552 triple-slash with 29 homers, 111 runs scored, 82 RBI and 17 steals. All three numbers on that slash-line were the best of his career. Ditto the home run mark, the runs scored mark and the RBI mark.
