Justin Morneau went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, and a run scored in the Rockies 8-5 win over the DBacks Monday.
The home run was Morneau's sixth of the season as he extended his current hit streak to 12-games. Morneau currently owns a slash line of .351/.376/.628 and is on pace to hit 38 home runs, which would best his career-high of 34 set back in 2006 with the Twins. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Dan Haren plans to retire after the playoffs are over.
This has been the plan all along and it sounds as though Haren is going to follow through. At age 34, Haren wasn't quite the same pitcher he once was, but he still did a solid job for the Cubs and Marlins this year posting a 3.60 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. It's unknown whether he will see a postseason start or pitch out of Chicago's bullpen. Analysis: David Kerr
