FYI: Rockies Fun Facts

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

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.

2017 Charlie Blackmon, Col             46

2016 Mookie Betts, Bos                 40

2009 Ian Kinsler, Tex                  39

1992 Brady Anderson, Bal               37

1996 Brady Anderson, Bal               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.

 

Mark Reynolds

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.
