Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story keeps on hitting.
And Rockies keep rolling.
They broke out the bats and defeated the Seattle Mariners, 10-7, in the first game of a three-game series Friday night at Coors Field.
Story broke a 2-2 tie with a two-run home run to center field in the third inning, his 19th home run of the season. Tony Wolters' two-run single capped a four-run fifth and the Rockies lead was at 8-3.
An inning later, Story's double brought in Nolan Arenado and Carlos Gonzalez to make it 10-3 Rockies.
Seattle closed the gap with four runs in the seventh but Adam Ottavino and Wade Davis shut down the Mariners in the eighth and ninth innings, respectively.
Story finished 2-5 with four RBIs. He now has 67 RBIs this year.
The Rockies have won three of four against the Mariners. Game two of this series is Saturday night. Coverage starts at 5:05 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 and 94.1 FM.
