By Comparison:Extra, Extra, Story is All About It

Rockies shortstop Trevor Story, back in the lineup Monday after missing five games with right elbow soreness, didn’t waste any time making his impact felt. He was 2-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored.

He became the 10th shortstop in Major League history to have 80 or more extra-base hits in a season. The group is led by Alex Rodriguez, who did it six times before being moved to a third baseman by the Yankees.
