Blackmon became the first player in Rockies history to hit leadoff homers in back-to-back games and added his first career grand slam in the seventh. Carlos Gonzalez homered for a fourth straight game, while D.J. LeMahieu and Gerardo Parra also went deep.

 

It was the first time Colorado hit seven homers at Coors Field. The team also had seven on April 5, 1997, in Montreal.
