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. Sep 17 - 12:49 AM

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).

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.

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.

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.
Aug 8 - 10:20 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-5 with three doubles and an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Blackmon hit an RBI double in the seventh inning to give the Rockies a slim 2-1 advantage, but the Phillies would come back with two runs of their own in the ninth to deny Colorado the win. The outfielder is up to 24 doubles this season. In addition, Blackmon is hitting a hearty .331/.388/.607 with 25 homers and 72 RBI across 453 at-bats.
Aug 6 - 6:57 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double and a walk Thursday as the Rockies topped the Mets 5-4.

The game ended on a bases-loaded walk to Nolan Arenado. Blackmon was coming off an odd game Wednesday in which he popped out or flied out in all five of his at-bats. The home run tonight was his 25th, and he added three to his NL-high total of 143 hits.
Aug 3 - 7:16 PM

Charlie Blackmon finished with two singles and two runs scored over three at-bats in Tuesday's game against the Mets and he added two walks.

Blackmon continues to hum right along, posting his 12th multi-hit game over his past 20 games dating back to July 6, raising his average from .311 to .330. He ranks third in the majors in batting average, although he finds himself 25 points behind Dodgers 3B Justin Turner for the National League lead.
Aug 2 - 1:20 AM

Charlie Blackmon went 4-for-5 with an RBI, a stolen base, and four runs scored as the Rockies beat the Nationals 10-6 in the first half of Sunday's doubleheader.

Blackmon was a menace all afternoon for the Nats, rattling four singles and scoring four of Colorado's 10 runs. The 31-year-old center fielder has an outstanding .329/.380/.606 batting line with 24 home runs, 70 RBI, nine stolen bases, and 93 runs scored in 104 games this season.
Jul 30 - 7:07 PM

Charlie Blackmon finished 2-for-5 with a double, a triple and two runs scored in Saturday's game against Pittsburgh.

Blackmon is putting together an MVP-caliber season, and he is having an amazing July to add to his resume. He has nine multi-hit performances across 17 games in the month of July, hitting .386 (27-for-70) with 21 runs scored, three doubles, three triples, six homers and 10 RBI to push his season average to .328.
