Rockies rookie shortstop Trevor Story hit his fourth home run of the season in just his third big-league game on Wednesday, setting a new record.
Rockies rookie shortstop Trevor Story made history on Wednesday by hitting his fourth home run of the season in just his third big-league game.
Story took Diamondbacks lefthander Patrick Corbin yard in the top of the first to give Colorado an early 2–0 lead. In doing so, he became the first player to homer in each of his first three games.
Story, who has been playing shortstop while Jose Reyes awaits a decision from the commissioner’s office on his domestic violence investigation, hit two homers in Colorado’s Opening Day win and one in an 11–6 loss Tuesday.
The 23-year-old was taken by the Rockies in the first round of the 2011 MLB draft out of Irving HS in Irving, Texas.
