Story’s clutch hits help Rockies beat Miami Marlins

Sep 28, 2017

DENVER -- Trevor Story made the Miami Marlins pay dearly on Wednesday.

The Marlins intentionally walked Nolan Arenado twice to get to the Colorado shortstop, and each time Story foiled the strategy with a two-run hit, helping the Rockies pound the Marlins 15-9 in the rubber game of their series.

The win helped the Rockies move closer to a postseason berth for the first time since 2009.

The Rockies (86-73) lead the Milwaukee Brewers (83-74) by 2.5 games and the St. Louis Cardinals (82-75) by 3.5 in the chase for the second National League wild-card spot after both teams lost later that day.

After driving in three runs Tuesday, Story had four RBIs Wednesday, raising his total for the season to 80. He had a two-run single in the six-run second inning and a two-run double in Colorado’s three-run fourth. Story has hit safely in six straight games and 16 of his past 18.
