By Comparison: Arenado Reaches 100th RBI for Fourth Time
Nolan Arenado, in his fifth full season in the big leagues, drove in his 100th run on Thursday afternoon, becoming the fifth player in franchise history to have four or more seasons of 100 RBI. Arenado, who was called up after four weeks of the 2013 season, has driven in 100 or more runs each of the last four seasons.
Dante Bichette (1995-1999) and Vinny Castilla (1996-99, 2004) and Larry Walker (1995, 1997, 1999, 2001-2002) each had five 100-RBI seasons. Todd Helton (2000-03) had four 100 RBI seasons during his career.
The single-season record of 150 RBI was put together by Andres Galarraga, who reached the 100-RBI mark three times (1995-97).
