By Comparsion: Blackmon 14-game Hit Streak, Halfway to Club Record

Charlie Blackmon goes into Sunday’s game at Arizona with a 14-game hitting streak, the longest active streak in MLB this year. This is the fourth 14-game hitting streak of his career. It, however, is 14-games shy of the franchise record set by Nolan Arenado during the 2014 season, and is five games shy of making into the Rockies top 10 for a single-season hitting streak.

At 84-70, the Rockies have the second best record in franchise history after 154 games. They are three wins behind 2009, when the Rockies advanced to the post-season as a wild-card, but are one win ahead of last year when the Rockies also had a wild-card invite to the post-season, and two wins ahead of the 2007 team that won the NL pennant.
