Blackmon went 2-for-3 with a walk in a loss to the Dodgers on Monday. Blackmon collected a pair of singles and a walk but was stranded in scoring position twice. The center fielder had a spectacular finish to the regular season, carrying a .349/.410/.624 slash line in the month of September. The 32-year-old also had a solid campaign overall, hitting .289 with 29 home runs, 12 stolen bases and a .212 ISO.
Blackmon went 4-for-5, drove in three runs and scored three runs while hitting for the cycle in the Rockies' 12-0 win over the Nationals on Sunday. Blackmon closed out his regular season in style, becoming the first MLB player ever to hit for the cycle in a season finale. The 32-year-old wasn't as dominant this season as he was in last year's MVP-caliber campaign, but he still posted terrific fantasy numbers, with a .289/.356/.501 slash line to go along with 29 homers, 12 stolen bases and a National League-leading 119 runs scored.
Blackmon went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, an RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

Blackmon is hitting .364 with four homers, 10 RBI and 18 runs in 23 games over that span. The 32-year-old leads the NL with 114 runs scored this season, and he's once again put up a hearty slash line of .289/.358/.492 with 27 homers and 66 RBI.
Blackmon went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers. Blackmon briefly put Colorado ahead with his fifth-inning home run -- his 27th of the year -- though the Dodgers would tie it back up in the bottom of the frame in the extra-inning defeat. The 32-year-old is working on an 11-game hitting streak and is now slashing .375/.438/.656 across 64 at-bats since the start of September.
Blackmon is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against Arizona, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports. Blackmon will receive a rare day off following 15 straight starts as Gerardo Parra gets a nod in the outfield for the series finale. During that 15-game stretch, Blackmon has hit .355 with a 1.011 OPS and nine extra-base hits. Look for him to return to the starting lineup Friday in San Francisco.
