Todd Helton became the 50th player to hit 500 career doubles when he knocked one off the right field scoreboard in the third inning. He would then hit a solo homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to put the Rockies ahead of the D'Backs 4-3.
We salute you, Todd Helton!
The bullpen pitched well today, as Matt Daley threw a 1-2-3 inning with two strikeouts and Juan Rincon followed in the eighth with a 1-2-3 inning. And just to shake things up, Huston Street also threw a 1-2-3 inning.
52 - 43
