Blackmon went 2-for-4 with a walkoff grand slam and a sacrifice fly in Friday's 8-4 win over the Angels. Blackmon completed the Rockies' rally in the bottom of the ninth, slugging his sixth homer of the year off Angels reliever Jose Quijada. The 34-year-old Blackmon is slashing an excellent .331/.383/.506 with 35 RBI, 27 runs scored and a stolen base through 43 games this season. The grand slam was his second of the year.
Blackmon went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and an additional run scored in a win over the Dodgers on Saturday. Blackmon played a part in both runs scored against Dodgers starter Tony Gonsolin, crossing the plate on an error after doubling in the second inning and registering the first home run this season against the right-hander in the fourth. Blackmon's long ball was only his second since Aug. 7. He has cooled down a bit after a scorching start to the season but is still slashing .347/.401/.524 overall.
Blackmon went 1-for-4 with a grand slam and a walk in Wednesday's win over the Diamondbacks. Blackmon essentially put the game out of reach for the Rockies with a grand slam in the top of the eighth that made it 8-1 for Colorado and, although Arizona came just one run away from forcing extra innings, the Rockies came through and got the win. This was Blackmon's fourth homer of the season and first one since Aug. 7. The star centerfielder, who hovered around the .400 mark earlier this season, has slowed down of late and is "only" hitting .289 with a .767 OPS in his last 10 games.
Blackmon (quadriceps) is starting in left field and batting cleanup Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. He was scratched from Monday's lineup with left quadriceps tightness, and thankfully it will be just a one-game absence, although sometimes this type of injury pops back up. Blackmon is hitting .282 with zero home runs in 39 at-bats over his last 10 games, five of which came away from Coors Field.
Blackmon was scratched from Monday's lineup against Arizona with left quadriceps tightness, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Sam Hilliard will get the nod in right field in Blackmon's place Monday evening.
