To date the Colorado Rockies have treated their fans to a thrilling start to the 2014 season. From Charlie Blackmon to Troy Tulowitzki, there has been plenty to cheer about in Colorado. But third baseman Nolan Arenado has been the most exciting of all, something that continued on Thursday night.
Arenado extended his hitting streak to 28 games against the Texas Rangers.
That sets a team record for the Rockies, breaking the mark set by Michael Cuddyer in 2013.
#Rockies Arenado: Streak began on April 9. He’s hitting .369 during the steak. Was a single in his 2nd AB tonight.

At just 23 years old, Arenado is venturing into uncharted territory with some of these accomplishments as a second year player. If he is going to keep it up for the next handful of games he will have to continue to do so on the road. With the way he has been going, there is no reason to think that he won’t do just that.
