The Rockies improve to 7-2 on this road trip with a chance for the four-game sweep in Philly on Thursday. Trevor Story returned to the lineup with a hit and two walks and Carlos Gonzalez is finally heating up with eight hits in three games against the Phillies. They're 18-7 on the road and they look like they're going to stick around.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Kyle Schwarber's home run -- which left Wrigley Field and landed on Sheffield Avenue -- paced the league by 10 feet on Tuesday. Bryce Harper landed comfortably in second, followed by Michael Conforto, Kendrys Morales and Charlie Blackmon.

ESPN Stats and Information  

After knocking four runs in on Tuesday vs. the Phillies, Charlie Blackmon has 40 RBIs -- all from the leadoff spot -- in the Rockies' first 47 games of the season. That's the fewest team games to accumulate 40 RBIs from the leadoff spot since MLB began recording RBIs in 1920, per the Elias Sports Bureau. Ian Kinsler (2009) and Mookie Betts (2016) shared the previous record (52 games). (Photo: Ron Chenoy/USA TODAY Sports)

Real or not? Charlie Blackmon, MVP contender

Blackmon now leads the majors with 40 RBIs (and he's a leadoff hitter). Maybe Nolan Arenado is still the team MVP, but Blackmon is right there this season.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

In the past calendar year, Charlie Blackmon ranks fourth in baseball in batting average (.329), ninth in home runs (38), eighth in RBIs (108) and first in runs (129) and hits (216). He also has 18 stolen bases during that time. Blackmon might not receive the fanfare that Mookie Betts, Kris Bryant and Manny Machado do in fantasy baseball, but he belongs right up there with each of them as a first-round, franchise player.

Rockies 1B Mark Reynolds (rest) is not in Tuesday's lineup vs. the Phillies. Ian Desmond will start in his place and bat fifth against Zach Eflin while Gerardo Parra will start in left field and bat sixth.
