Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Crosses plate twice in win
Blackmon went 2-for-2 with two runs and an RBI in Friday's Cactus League win over the Cubs.
Blackmon appeared in his fourth Cactus League game of the year Friday, and he's served exclusively as the leadoff man this spring. Per Thomas Harding of MLB.com, manager Bud Black was noncommittal when asked whether Blackmon would hit at the top of the lineup to begin the regular season. However, the 35-year-old served as the leadoff man for several years earlier in his career, and the Rockies acquired more bats during the offseason that can hit in the heart of the order. Blackmon hasn't recorded any extra-base hits this spring but has gone 3-for-9 with three runs, an RBI, two walks and a strikeout across his four appearances.... See More ... See Less
