Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Homers, reaches base three times
Hilliard went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two walks in a 13-inning loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.Hilliard smacked a clutch solo homer to right field in the ninth inning to tie the game at five, though Colorado ultimately succumbed in the 13th frame. The 27-year-old has hit two homers on the season but has played only sporadically and has struck out in four of his nine at-bats.
Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Clubs first homer
Hilliard went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 11-6 loss to the Dodgers.The 27-year-old entered the game in the sixth inning and still got in a solid complement of at-bats while taking David Price deep as part of a six-run seventh for the Rockies. Hilliard hasn't started either of the Rockies' first two games, a somewhat worrying sign for his playing time this season, and he may need the Colorado outfield to get a little less crowded to move into a larger role.
Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Homers against Cleveland
Hilliard went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and two strikeouts in Friday's spring win over Cleveland.Hilliard took part in a three-run second inning Friday by hitting his first home run of the spring with no outs in the frame. He was unable to generate any results in his other two at-bats but has now gone 9-for-35 with nine runs, seven RBI, four stolen bases, six walks and 12 strikeouts over 15 Cactus League games. With Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) out for at least a month, Hilliard could potentially carve out extra playing time in the outfield to begin the regular season if Garrett Hampson sees time at second base.
