Rockies' Trevor Story reaches shortstop milestone with 40th double

Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story added another chapter to his outstanding 2018 season Tuesday night with a first-inning RBI double off Arizona Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke.

It was Story's 40th double and 100th RBI of the season, making him the first primary-position shortstop to reach 40 doubles, 30 home runs and 25 stolen bases in a season.

He also joined Alex Rodriguez as the only primary-position shortstops to have 30 homers, 100 RBIs and 20 stolen bases in a season since 1920, when RBIs became an official stat. Rodriguez reached the plateau on two occasions, in 1998 and '99.

The Rockies lost 6-3.

Story, 25, has 32 home runs on the season and hit the 30-homer mark with three blasts in the past week. He has 25 stolen bases and has been caught only six times.

He's hitting .293/.347/.905 and has made a case for National League MVP, with the Rockies clinging to a 1½-game lead over the Dodgers in the NL West.
