Rockies' Story sets MLB record with 2 homers

PHOENIX (AP) Monday night marked a storybook beginning for Trevor Story's major league career.

The 23-year-old Colorado Rockies shortstop became the first player in major league history to hit multiple home runs in his big league debut on opening day.

Both came off Zack Greinke - a three-run shot in the third inning and a solo home run in the fourth.

Story is the first National League player to hit at least two homers in his first major league game. Four American League players have done it.
