Tuesday by Comparison: Story Writing Quite a Tale
Rockies shortstop Trevor Story homered twice and drove in five runs in the Rockies 9-8 victory against the Giants on Monday, the ninth time in his career he has had at least two home runs and four RBI in a game. Story is one of seven players in Rockies history to have nine or more such games, tied with Nolan Arenado, and six games behind franchise all-time leader Vinny Castilla.

With the win on Monday, the Rockies moved back into first place in the NL West, and have the second-best record in franchise history after 137 games. They are two games shy of 1995 in terms of the latest in a season (in terms of games played) that the franchise has been in first place.
This is only the eighth time in franchise history the Rockies have had a winning record at the 137-game point in a season.
