Seeing the Cubs win five straight is pretty remarkable, but pales in comparison to Troy Tulowitzki’s month of September.
When you’re hot, you’re hot. And Tulo is most definitely hot! We’re talking firecracker hot, blue flame hot…a .394 average with 35 RBI in his last 16 games hot. That’s nearly as many RBI as Kosuke Fukudome has all year (40)-hot!
Tulo smacked two more homers Saturday giving him 14 in his last 15 contests, which ties the modern major league record set by Albert Belle (1995) & Barry Bonds (2001).
Perhaps the best explanation for Tulo’s success is Carlos Gonzalez, who’s set the stage in front of Tulowitzki from the three-hole.
If it wasn’t for the Little Pony’s .341 average and league leading 184 hits and 328 total bases, Tulowitzki wouldn’t see anything to hit at all!
The duo, not surprisingly, has carried the Rockies during its patented late season run.
Having won 20 of its last 26 games, Colorado has climbed within 1 game of the West leading Padres and 2.5 back of Atlanta for the Wild Card. That’s pretty hot, but it still ain’t Tulo hot!
