Rockies' Story becomes 1st player to homer in 1st 4 games

Published Apr. 8, 2016 7:57 p.m. ET

DENVER (AP) Colorado rookie sensation Trevor Story homered again Friday, becoming the first major league player to connect in each of his first four games.

Story has hit five home runs in since making his debut on opening day. His latest shot was a two-run drive off San Diego right-hander Colin Rea in the fourth inning.

After hitting four homers in Arizona, Story made his debut Friday at hitter-friendly Coors Field, where the Rockies raised the height of the fences over the winter.

His 411-foot drive down the left field line was a no-doubter, though. It pulled the Rockies to 6-5 and chased Rea.

Story said Thursday he had donated his helmet at batting gloves from his historic start to the baseball Hall of Fame but wasn't about to part with any of his bats.

Story also had an RBI single in the second.
