With 128 RBIs, including four that came on one swing in Wednesday’s 11-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, Nolan Arenado is all but a lock for the National League RBI crown for a second consecutive year. His 39th home run, however, keeps him just one ahead of Chicago’s Kris Bryant.

Arenado’s league-leading home run came in the second inning Wednesday off Luke Weaver as part of a five-run second inning. Colorado was the beneficiary of two St. Louis errors while going 5-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Tom Murphy contributed to a game-sealing five-run seventh inning with a three-run blast of his own.

Bryant also homered Wednesday to bring his total to 38. Arenado ended last season tied with Bryce Harper for the NL home run crown with 42. This year appears to be going down to the wire as well.

Postgame, manager Walt Weiss was pleased with the offense, which had struggled in the first two games of the series against St. Louis.

The Rockies are in Los Angeles for a four-game series beginning Thursday.
