He blasted a two-run shot off Blake Snell in the second inning, then brought home Charlie Blackmon with a walkoff single in the eighth inning. Fuentes has had a rough start to the season, hitting just .204 through 34 games, but he's supplied some modest power with three homers and 13 RBI.

Fuentes started 14 of the Rockies' first 17 games, but he hasn't performed well at all at the plate, hitting .175/.175/.298 through 57 plate appearances. He doesn't appear to be the team's top option at third base any more. Ryan McMahon makes his third straight start there Saturday, with Garrett Hampson again moving in from center field to second base and Yonathan Daza making his third start in a row in center. That appears to be Colorado's default alignment for now.
Fuentes will remain on the bench Friday against the Phillies.
Fuentes finds himself on the bench for the second game in a row and the fifth time in the Rockies' first 19 games.

Ryan McMahon will receive another start at third base, with Garrett Hampson again getting the nod at second.

Fuentes went 1-for-3 with a home run and four RBI in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets.
After bringing home a run with a groundout in the first inning, Fuentes launched a three-run shot in the fifth to help put the game away. It's the second homer of the year for the 28-year-old and he has nine RBI through 14 games, but his .188/.188/.333 slash line and 0:14 BB:K leave a lot to be desired.
Fuentes (wrist) went 1-for-2 with a double, one run and one RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.
Fuentes was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to left wrist soreness and didn't start in the series opener against Arizona on Tuesday.

Fuentes didn't appear to be bothered by his wrist injury while hitting and playing the field Tuesday, and he should be available going forward.
The Rockies scratched Fuentes from the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers due to left wrist soreness, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

Fuentes went deep in the top of the seventh inning of Blake Treinen to make it a 4-4 game, but the Dodgers stepped the foot on the gas and ended up winning the game.

Fuentes smacked a double in the bottom of the first inning and drove in a run with a single in the bottom of the third. The 28-year-old has now hit .333 with one home run, 11 RBI and eight runs this spring. Although C.J. Cron will serve as the primary first baseman for the Rockies this year, Fuentes could see an uptick in playing time at third base over the first few weeks of the season while Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) is unavailable.
Fuentes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and one double in Sunday's spring loss to the Royals.
Fuentes was a bright spot in the Rockies' lineup Sunday, and he put the team on the board with a solo blast in the eighth inning. The 28-year-old is now hitting .275 with one home run, seven runs, five RBI, one walk and eight strikeouts over 15 Cactus League games this spring. While C.J. Cron figures to see the bulk of the playing time at first base this year, Fuentes could carve out at-bats at third base early in the season if Ryan McMahon shifts to second base while Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) is sidelined.
Fuentes went 1-for-3 with a double, two RBI and two strikeouts in Saturday's spring win over the Angels.
Although Fuentes struck out twice Saturday, he blasted a two-run double in the top of the fourth inning and scored later in the frame. Over his first five games this spring, the 28-year-old has gone 4-for-10 with two doubles, four runs, three RBI and three strikeouts. He's currently in a battle for playing time at first base, but his defensive versatility means that he could play third base or left field if needed, even if C.J. Cron, Greg Bird or Connor Joe win the job at first base, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Fuentes went 1-for-1 with a double, two runs and one RBI in Wednesday's 10-7 spring win over the Athletics.
C.J. Cron started at first base in Wednesday's Cactus League matchup, but Fuentes entered the game as a defensive replacement in the top of the fifth inning. He doubled during his first at-bat before being hit by a pitch in the sixth inning during the comeback win. He's now gone 3-for-5 with three runs, one RBI and one strikeout over his first three spring games. He also made several impressive plays at first base Wednesday, while Cron committed a fielding error in the second inning that led to a run scoring. Fuentes will have to battle for playing time to begin the season after the Rockies brought Cron and Greg Bird in as non-roster invitees during the offseason, and he could be sent down if he struggles since he still has two options remaining. However, the 28-year-old has embraced the competition so far and has played well to begin spring training.
