Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado follows Trevor Story's big week with one of his own

Over the first week of the season, Trevor Story socked six home runs and drove in 11, but this week, third baseman Nolan Arenado stole the show.

The talk of the first week of the season was Colorado Rockies rookie Trevor Story hit .333/.357/1.111 with seven home runs and 12 RBIs in the first week of his big league career, but he's very much cooled off, going 7-for-27 over the past seven games. Good thing for the Rockies that they have Nolan Arenado.

The fourth-year third baseman had a breakout year last season, slugging 42 homers and driving in 130 runs, and so far this season, he's got 6 and 16, respectively, with most of that work being done over the last week.

During the second week of the season, Arenado has a slash line of .333/.333/.852, driving in 12 and hitting four homers over the last six games, scoring seen runs and popping two doubles.

Over the last week, the Rockies have gone 4-2, with Arenado slugging two of his four homers on Sunday against the Chicago Cubs in a 2-0 win.

Arenado paced the bigs in RBIs, was second in slugging, home runs and OPS (1.185) and doubles, this in hits and second in runs (7), homered in four straight games to end the week and struck out just two times.
