Story went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Astros. Story took reliever Brad Peacock deep in the eighth inning for his 25th homer of the year. Story leads all MLB shortstops in RBI (82) while trailing only Cleveland's Francisco Lindor in home runs (29) at the position. The 25-year-old is hitting .290/.347/.552 with 33 doubles and 15 stolen bases, and is riding a nice 11-game hitting streak.
Story went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI on Saturday against the Brewers. Story took Freddy Peralta and Matt Albers deep Saturday, bumping his home run total up to 23 on the season. He's enjoyed his time at Miller Park, homering three times in the first two games of the weekend set. Those home runs were his first since the All-Star break, but the Rockies return to Coors Field on Monday, so he may continue his hot stretch.
Story is not in the lineup against St. Louis on Monday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Story will receive a night off for just the second time this season as Garrett Hampson gets a start at shortstop in his stead. Across 20 games this month, Story is hitting .355/.410/.618 with four home runs, 10 RBI and three stolen bases. Look for him to rejoin the starting nine Tuesday.
Story went 1-for-4 with a walkoff solo home run to send the Rockies to a 4-3 victory over the Mariners on Sunday. Story continued his recent home-run barrage in dramatic fashion with this game-ending blast off Nick Vincent. That gives him four long balls in his last seven games and 20 on the season in what has been a phenomenal first half for the 25-year-old All-Star, who is now slashing a robust .292/.353/.557 through 366 at-bats.
Story went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double and four RBI to help pace Colorado to Friday's 10-7 win over the Mariners. Story's monster season continues, as his third-inning blast off Christian Bergman marked his 19th long ball of the season and brought his OPS to a sterling .906. After hitting just .239 last year, Story has rebounded with a .291 mark through 358 at-bats. He also has a solid .353 on-base percentage, and he's swiped 12 bases in 16 attempts for good measure, so there really isn't anything Story hasn't done in the first half of the season as he looks headed for a career-best campaign.
