There’s no team that rebounds from a loss better than the Rockies — at least this year. And Charlie Blackmon and Mark Reynolds are hitting high marks for their RBI.
With a tip of the hat to Stats, Inc.:
The Rockies and Dodgers are tied for the best winning percentage after a loss this season:
Colorado Rockies 14-6 .700
Los Angeles Dodgers 14-6 .700
Houston Astros 11-5 .688
Boston Red Sox 15-8 .652
Yankees 12-7 .632
Nationals 12-7 .632
The Mariners are 12-17 (.414) following a loss this season, sixth worst in MLB.
Charlie Blackmon leads MLB with 46 RBI this season, all from the leadoff spot. That is the most RBI by any leadoff hitter before June since RBI became an official stat in 1920.

2009 Ian Kinsler, Tex 39
1992 Brady Anderson, Bal 37
1996 Brady Anderson, Bal 37
2002 Jacque Jones, Min 37
No player has led MLB or a league (NL or AL) in RBI in a season where their primary batting slot (based on PA) was the leadoff spot.
Despite not leading his team, Mark Reynolds’ RBI total is one of the highest by an NL first baseman through 50 games in the last 10 seasons.
