Rockies' C.J. Cron: Cranks grand slam Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cron went 1-for-3 with a grand slam and a walk in Friday's 10-4 loss to the Dodgers.

Cron homered with the bases loaded in the third inning off Julio Urias. He drove in all four of Colorado's runs in the game. The first baseman has homered in back-to-back games dating back to before the All-Star break. His 13 long balls rank second on the team behind Ryan McMahon's 16. Cron's 12.1 percent walk rate is double his career mark and he has maintained a strikeout rate right around his career norm. That, and batting at Coors Field, has helped him to a career-high .846 OPS through 279 plate appearances this season.

The first baseman was in a mini 0-for-8 slump prior to the consecutive extra-base hits and enters the break slashing .254/.364/.470 with 12 home runs and 35 runs and RBI apiece in 75 games.
