The Stat Line of the Night – 9/15/10 – Troy Tulowitzki
Troy Tulowitzki is on a serious hot streak and really wants the Colorado Rockies to be playing playoff baseball come October.
Tulo and the Rocks hosted the first place San Diego Padres on Wednesday. Cliche perhaps, but it was a must-win game for the Rockies if they want to have a shot at the division title. Tulowitzki provided the excitement again, as he has all September.
Tulowitzki jacked 2 homers and drove in 7 runs to lead the Rockies to victory and avoid the series sweep by the Padres. Tulowitzki has been amazing this month and last night was his third multi-homer game in a just over a week. The 7 RBIs tied a career high for him. He now has a ridiculous 11 homers in September and there is still about half of the month left. He can tie the franchise record for homers in a month by hitting just one more.
The Rockies are 2.5 back with 16 games to play. They still have a shot thanks to Troy Tulowitzki. He has The Stat Line of the Night for 9/15/10.
