David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

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.

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.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Colorado Rockies are in first place in their division - already having spent more days in first than in all but one season of their existence (1995). They've never won a division title. A lot of the team's strength has come from their play on the road. They have a winning record on the road at 15-7 (.682), the third-best winning percentage in the majors and best in the NL on the road.

Revisiting preseason questions: Rockies

In mid-February, we wondered if Bud Black's influence could ease Colorado's pitching woes. A quarter of the way through, the answer has been a resounding yes.

ESPN Stats and Information  

With a home run, a double and the victory on Sunday, Rockies P Kyle Freeland became only the third rookie starting pitcher in the last 30 years to produce multiple extra-base hits, including a homer, and get the win on the mound in a single game (Elias Sports Bureau).

Real or not? Greg Holland's opus

Holland picked up his 19th save on Sunday and is on pace to make a run at Francisco Rodriguez's single-season record of 62 set with the Angels in 2008.

Only Danny Graves (21, in 2004) and Lee Smith (19, in 1994) have ever saved as many games as Greg Holland's 19 through his team's first 45 games of a season.
