Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon has set a major league record for most RBIs in a season by a leadoff man as the Rockies defeated the Dodgers 9-1. Blackmon hit a two-run homer in the second inning Friday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers, giving him 101 RBIs from the top spot in the lineup. The player with the mullet and bushy beard collected one more RBI this year while batting third. Blackmon topped Darin Erstad for the mark. Erstad had 100 RBIs from the leadoff spot in 2000 for the Angels.
