After grinding through a 3-5 road trip, the Colorado Rockies got a healthy dose of LoDo Magic on Friday night.

Shortstop Trevor Story blasted a two-run, walk-off home run in an 8-6 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

Trailing 5-1 in the bottom of the fourth, the Rockies started chipping away.

Two runs in the fourth.

Then Story drilled his 100th career home run, a two-run shot in the seventh. Story needed only 448 career games to reach 100 career home runs, the fastest any shortstop has reached that number in Major League Baseball history.

Nolan Arenado followed Story's home run with a solo shot of his own, his second homer of the night, that tied the game 6-6.

The stage was set for Story's heroics in the bottom of the ninth.

Ryan McMahon led off with a single. After Raimel Tapia struck out, Story did his thing and gave the Rockies the win.
