Arenado went 2-for-3 with a grand slam, two runs and a walk in the 11-1 victory over the Cardinals on Wednesday.
The homer moves him back into first place with 39 bombs in the National League, one ahead of Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant. Arenado also leads the NL with 128 RBI and nobody is even within 20 RBI of him. He is also hitting .294 with 111 runs and two stolen bases.
That's now 37 for Arenado, so he's closing right in on last year's total of 42 homers -- and with three-plus weeks to go, he's already sitting on a career-high 102 runs while being just a dozen short of last year's 130 RBI. Indeed, he's been even better in nearly every facet of the game than he was last year; particularly impressive, he's nearly doubled his walk rate while cutting his strikeout rate from last season. It has to be a scary thought for Arenado's NL West opponents that at 25 years old, he may have even better seasons than this ahead of him.
Arenado went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run in Monday's 8-1 win over the Dodgers.
Arenado was a little late to the party, but drove in DJ LeMahieu in the seventh for Colorado's sixth run of the game and his 112th RBI of the season. Baseball's leading run producer has been on fire with six multi-hit efforts in his last eight games. Things could get even better in his next eight, with all of them coming at the hitter-friendly Coors Field.
He's been on fire recently, hitting .552 (16-for-29) with five homers, 13 RBI and seven runs scored over the last seven games to push his slash line on the season to .291/.361/.576. Perhaps more impressively, Arenado did most of that damage on the road -- only the first of those seven games took place at Coors Field. With the
Arenado went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Brewers.
Arenado's third-inning smash was his 33rd of the year, and his third in as many nights. After a stretch of poor games that saw his batting average drop more than 10 points mid-month, the third baseman has gotten back on track recently. In his last three games, Arenado is 9-for-13 with four extra-base hits, nine RBI and three runs scored.
