David Dahl, Rockies rookie, ties 75-year-old mark with 17-game hitting streak – The Denver Post
David Dahl is very, very good at baseball; historically good. If Dahl gets a hit today against the Phillies, he will be in sole possession of the record for longest hitting streak to begin career. The current record holder is Chuck Aleno, who hit in 17 straight for Cincinnati in 1941.

Mark Reynolds has injured left hand |
Yesterday's victory wasn't all good news for the team, as Mark Reynolds injured the hamate bone in his hand. This isn't the first time the team has dealt with a hamate injury, as former Rockie Troy Tulowitzki fractured the bone in 2010 and landed on the disabled list. The best hope with Reynolds is that the bone isn't broken and he can return soon, otherwise the Rockies will be in desperate need of a right-handed bat.

Carlos Gonzalez hits clutch pinch-hit double |
So, Carlos Gonzalez seems to be healthy again, which is an excellent sign for the Rockies. Hitting live pitching for the first time since Monday, CarGo gave the Rockies a three run lead which was good enough for the team to secure the win. He also extended hit streak to 18 games. At the end, check out an update on Chad Qualls and Trevor Story.
