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
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
