During his time with the Colorado Rockies, Nolan Arenado tormented all of the teams in the National League West at various stages. On July 19, 2017, at Coors Field, it was San Diego’s turn.
Nolan Arenado’s most productive game with the Colorado Rockies
On a Wednesday afternoon in downtown Denver, Arenado went 5-for-6 at the plate and knocked in seven runs to lead the Rockies to a 18-4 crushing of the Padres. Of his five hits, three would be home runs and all would come in consecutive innings with Arenado lifting a solo home run in the fourth and fifth innings, and a three-run shot in the sixth.
It would be the first time in his career that Arenado would hit three home runs in one game.
He would also have RBI singles in the first and second innings, giving him five hits in the first six innings of the contest.
What makes this performance unique: Arenado’s five hits are the most of any player who totaled 14 total bases in Rockies history. His two singles equate to the one double hit by the other players on the list.
