Ortega went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored and a walk Thursday against the Rockies.

Ortega extended his hitting streak to seven games, four of which have been multi-hit efforts. He's also slugged four home runs in that stretch -- three came in one game -- to go along with nine RBI and 10 runs scored. Ortega has served as the team's primary leadoff hitter since July 21 and should be locked into regular playing time until the close of the campaign.
