In the Rockies 7-4 win over the Reds, Todd Helton doubled for his 2,500th career hit.
“As he’s been closing in on it there’s been a lot of excitement in the clubhouse,” Rockies manager Walt Weiss told the AP. “It’s great to be a part of it. I got to see Todd in his very first game and to be here for his 2,500th hit, it’s a great experience for me. He showed up with a lot of hype and he’s lived up to that hype. Every bit of it, and then some. It’s been an amazing career.”
