Charlie Blackmon went 6-for-6 against the Diamondbacks on Friday night, tying a Rockies franchise record for hits in a game originally set on July 3, 1995 against the Astros by Andres Galarraga, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post. Blackmon doubled and scored in the first, singled and scored in the third, hit a two-run home run in the fourth, doubled and was caught stealing in the sixth, hit an RBI single and scored in the seventh, and knocked in two runs with a double in the eighth.

There have been just three six-hit games since the start of the 2010 season. Blackmon has one; Jean Segura and Alex Rios each accomplished the feat last year.

Blackmon, 27, has started in center in three out of the Rockies’ first five games. He was fighting for a reserve outfield role in the spring, but manager Walt Weiss praised his defense at the end of the month. His six-hit outburst could lead to even more playing time at the expense of Corey Dickerson and Drew Stubbs.

    Awesome game!! But someone needs to add what is sadly missing from this article: Rennie Stennett, 9/16/1975, 9-inning game, 7 for 7.
