The 37-year-old outfielder was able to make an impact out of the leadoff spot Saturday, and he continues to be one of the Rockies' top hitters.

All five of those contests have taken place at Coors Field, though Blackmon has still successfully returned to the field following a two-month absence.

Blackmon has at least one hit in all four games since returning from a hand injury, and he's reached base multiple times in each of his three starts.

One of his hits was an infield single leading off the eighth inning that sparked a four-run frame in the come-from-behind victory. Blackmon began the game as the Rockies' designated hitter before moving into right field in the ninth. He'll likely work as the team's DH most games moving forward.... See More ... See Less
