Rockies’ Arenado has All-Star-caliber day in Cincinnati

With the Rockies playing in Cincinnati on Monday, Nolan Arenado made a case for being back in that city for the All-Star Game in July.

Arenado went 3 for 4 including an RBI single in the first inning and a solo home run in the fourth. The one at bat he didn’t get a hit was a sacrifice fly in the ninth which scored the go-ahead run for the Rockies in their victory over the Reds.

Of course, a great Arenado game wouldn’t be complete without a spectacular defensive play. In the eighth inning he dove into the stands behind third base to catch a ball — a play not unlike one he made earlier this year in San Francisco.
