DENVER (AP) cheap Trevor Story jersey looked up to cheap Troy Tulowitzki jersey as he climbed through the Colorado Rockies jerseys’ minor leagues. Now he’s looking down at his mentor after another big night at the plate.
Story hit two home runs to set an NL rookie record for shortstops and the Rockies jerseys beat the Atlanta Braves jerseys 8 4 on Saturday night.
Story has said his success is due in part to Tulowitzki, the former fan favorite in Colorado who took Story under his wing after he was drafted in 2011. He tutored him in spring training and even worked with him in the offseason.
“He helped me out a lot, so to break his record was pretty cool,” Story said. “Any time you get to do something like that it was pretty special.”
Next up for Story is Nomar Garciaparra, who set the major league record for shortstops with 30 for the Boston Red Sox jerseys in 1997.
cheap Tyler Anderson jersey (3 3) worked around a 47 minute rain delay to finish with six strikeouts in six innings as the Rockies jerseys beat the Braves jerseys for the ninth straight time.
He was adamant about pitching the sixth and came through with a clean inning before turning it over to the bullpen.
Story started his night with a two run homer in the second off cheap Matt Wisler jersey (4 10) to gave Colorado a 2 1 lead. He drove in two more with a single in Colorado’s five run sixth and then led off the eighth with a deep shot off reliever cheap Jim Johnson jersey that gave the Rockies jerseys a four run lead.
It was his fourth multihomer game of the season. He also became the first rookie to go 4 for 4 with two homers, five RBIs and a stolen base since Bo Jackson of Kansas City did it in 1987.
“That kid’s the real deal,” Atlanta interim manager Brian Snitker said.
Anderson realized that as he moved through the Colorado system with Story.
“I played with him at every level and you could see him getting better and better and better,” Anderson said. “When we saw him last year in Albuquerque, we thought, ‘This guy’s a stud.'”
A strong weather cell moved through the area and brought the tarp out after the second inning. Anderson gave up a one out triple to cheap Freddie Freeman jersey in the third, and he scored on cheap Adonis Garcia jersey’s single to give the Braves jerseys a 3 2 lead.
Wisler, who allowed six runs on six hits, got the Braves jerseys on the board first with an RBI single in the second.
Braves jerseys: RHP cheap Julio Teheran jersey, who left Friday’s game with tightness in his right lat, underwent a strength test Saturday and checked out fine. Snitker said Teheran could be available for his next scheduled start. “We’ll just wait and see,” Snitker said. “I’m optimistic, but if he can’t, with this off day on Monday, we might be able to get an extra day, too.”
Rockies jerseys: RHP cheap Chad Qualls jersey was placed on the 15 day DL retroactive to July 16 with colitis and RHP cheap Scott Oberg jersey was recalled from Triple A Albuquerque. Qualls is 2 0 with a 5.61 ERA in 36 games this season. Oberg tossed a perfect seventh in Saturday’s win.
Story is now second in franchise history for homers by a rookie. He passed Todd Helton, who had 25 in 1998, and is two behind Wilin Rosario’s 28, reached in 2012.
Freeman tripled for the second straight night and now has six this season. That is the most by a Braves jerseys first baseman since they moved to Atlanta in 1966.
The Braves jerseys will send RHP cheap Tyrell Jenkins jersey (0 1, 4.05) against Colorado LHP cheap Tyler Chatwood jersey (8 6, 3.83) in the four game series finale Sunday. Jenkins is making his cheap authentic jerseys third career start, and Chatwood will try to reverse his struggles at Coors Field, where he is 3 6 with a 6.26 ERA in nine starts.
