Story went 2-for-4 with a ninth-inning stolen base and the game-tying run in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Mets. After a leadoff single, Story swiped second and scored on an error to tie the game and hand Mets closer Jeurys Familia a blown save. The steal was just his eighth in 13 tries this year, which may be less than fantasy owners expected after he swiped 20-plus in three straight minor league seasons -- but when you've hit 27 homers, that sure does go a long way toward making up for it.
Story went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, a double and an additional run scored during Sunday's win over Atlanta. Story feasted on Braves pitching over the weekend series, as four of his seven hits went for home runs en route to nine RBI and seven runs scored as well. 'Breakout' hardly seems to describe what Story has done during his first Major League season, as his 27 round-trippers now lead the National League.
Story went 4-for-4 with two home runs, five RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base during Saturday's 8-4 win over the Braves. The impressive rookie dug his team out of an early hole with a two-run blast in the second inning, gave them the lead with a two-run single in the sixth, and put an exclamation point on the win with a solo shot in the eighth. Story has been an excellent source of power this season, but he has been especially productive over the last six games in that department, as he has five home runs to go along with 10 RBI, eight runs scored and a pair of stolen bases to boot.
Story homered in a 2-for-3 game with a walk, two runs scored and two RBI in Monday's win over Tampa Bay. Story remains atop the MLB shortstop leaderboard with 22 homers and is the only National League shortstop with 20 home runs yet this season. He now owns a .286 ISO, and if Story can sustain that mark, it will be the best ISO a shortstop has posted since Alex Rodriguez's .301 mark with the Rangers in 2003. His power is otherworldly for the position, making him one of the best hitting shortstops in the game no matter how many times he strikes out.
Story is out of the lineup Sunday against the Braves, Jenny Cavnar of ROOT Sports reports. Chalk this up as a routine day off for Story, who has started nine straight contests dating back to prior to the All-Star break. He collected a hit in each of the first two games of the series, but will give way to Cristhian Adames at shortstop for Sunday's finale.
