DENVER (AP) -- Trevor Story tied an NL rookie record for most home runs before the All-Star break, homering twice and boosting his total to 21 while the Colorado Rockies beat the Philadelphia Phillies 11-2 on Thursday night.
Story, one of five players on the ballot for the last NL All-Star berth, had a three-run drive in the third and a solo shot in the fifth. He joined Dave Kingman (1972) and Albert Pujols (2001) as the only NL rookies to hit 21 home runs prior to the break.
The Rockies scored runs in the first three innings, starting with Nolan Arenado's RBI double in the first off Adam Morgan (1-7). Morgan allowed six runs on nine hits in five innings and dropped to 0-7 in his last nine starts.
