Wilin Rosario homered and singled Tuesday against the Cubs, but he wasn’t able to record his fifth straight three-hit game before rain got the game called after 6 1/2 innings.
Rosario did have four at-bats, so it’s not as though the rain completely robbed him. However, he likely would have had one more at-bat had the game gone nine. The Rockies were leading 10-5 when the game ended.
Rosario was trying to become the first player since George Brett in 1976 to record five straight three-hit games. Brett actually had six in a row from May 13-18. No one since has had more than four in a row. Torii Hunter was the last to accomplish that earlier this year.
Rosario raised his average from .253 to .276 by going 14-for-21 over his last five games. The rookie catcher is now up to 27 homers this season.
