Dahl went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI in a 10-3 win over Arizona on Thursday. It was Dahl's third multi-hit effort in his last four games, bringing his season average from .264 to .283 during that span. In his 191 at-bats, he's racked up 31 RBI and 23 extra-base hits.
Dahl went 2-for-5 with a grand slam Monday in the Rockies' 13-2 win over the Diamondbacks. Dahl's 10th home run of the season turned a somewhat competitive contest into a runaway for the Rockies, who increased their NL West lead to one and a half games with the victory. Since the Rockies have faced a slew of left-handed starting pitchers of late, Dahl was included in the lineup for just the third time in seven games, but he still appears to hold a playing-time edge over Gerardo Parra, who has fallen into the fourth-outfielder role while batting just .211 in the second half.
