Blackmon has acted as the Rockies' leadoff hitter for much of the past few seasons, but he was moved to the three-hole recently to fill in for the suspended Nolan Arenado. With Arenado returning to the lineup Friday, manager Bud Black apparently liked what he saw from "Chuck Nasty" in the third spot in the order and will keep him there for now. This could be the start of a more longstanding change, which could result in more RBI opportunities for Blackmon, though his number of runs scored could take a dip now that he's not atop the order.

Spin: Blackmon -- who hadn't played since April 9 due to a quad injury -- returned to the lineup with a bang by drilling a two-run shot off Max Scherzer in the first inning for Colorado's only runs of the game. Blackmon had been ramping up his activity during the absence, including sprinting in the outfield on Friday, and finally got a clean bill of health from the Rockies training staff after one final check-up. He now has five home runs and eight RBIs to go along with a .279 average and a 1.054 OPS.]]>
