Not bad for Abreu, who also happened to be playing his first ever month in the big leagues. In all, Abreu batted .270 (31-for-115) with eight doubles, one triple, 10 home runs, 32 RBI and 20 runs scored in 29 games, leading the Majors in homers, RBI, total bases (71) and extra-base hits (19). He set major league records for rookies in all four of those categories.
Tulowitzki led the majors with a .477 on-base percentage and a .727 slugging percentage. He was second in hitting behind teammate Charlie Blackmon, posting a .364 average for the month, he scored 24 runs scored (1st), had 64 total bases (2nd), knocked in 22 runs (T-3rd), had seven home runs (T-4th) and nine doubles (T-5th) too.
Abreu, at 27, is clearly a fully-formed product. Tulowitzki is, after a lot of injuries, healthy as can be. Both of them just had a whale of a month.
