Blackmon is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Reds, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Blackmon went 2-for-5 with an RBI and two runs Saturday to bust out of a four-game slump, but he'll take a seat for the series finale. Raimel Tapia, Ian Desmond and David Dahl will start in the outfield from left to right Sunday.
Blackmon went 2-for-5 with an RBI and two runs Saturday in the Rockies' 17-9 loss to the Reds. After reaching base just once in 15 plate appearances over his previous four games, Blackmon was able to get back on track in a classic Coors Field affair in which the two teams combined for 39 hits. The running game isn't a major part of Blackmon's skill set at this point, but his stellar batting average (.327), solid pop (20 home runs, 48 extra-base hits) and regular role as the Rockies' leadoff man still makes him a fantasy star.
Blackmon went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, a walk and two runs scored Sunday against the Dodgers. Blackmon plated a run in the fifth inning on an infield single, and he clubbed a solo homer to right center in the bottom of the ninth in a 10-5 loss. The 32-year-old has now hit safely in eight of his last 11 contests, slugging four homers while driving in nine runs over that span. He'll aim to stay hot at the dish with five games remaining before the All-Star break.
Blackmon went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and a second run scored in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Dodgers. He took Clayton Kershaw deep in the third inning, his ninth homer in 21 games in June and 19th on the year. Blackmon's huge month has pushed his slash line up to .334/.380/.645, and the only disappointment in his 2019 numbers so far has been that the 32-year-old no longer seems like any kind of five-category threat -- he's gone just 2-for-4 on the basepaths this season.
Blackmon went 3-for-4 with an RBI, three runs scored and a walk in Friday's 13-9 win over the Dodgers. All three of the right fielder's hits were singles, including his RBI single to cap an eight-run fifth inning. Blackmon also established an MLB record by recording at least three hits in six straight home games, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Blackmon's been a beast at Coors Field this season, entering the game with a .458/.507/.992 line in 27 home games, including 14 homers and six triples.
