September 1, 2013 - Reds at Rockies
Helton would collect his 2,500th hit on a seventh inning double - the moment everyone in the stadium was waiting for - and I would be both unlucky and not great in execution. The hit went for a stretched double, and I was looking for a single or a homerun and I sat at first base - and he went opposite-field, when I was looking for him to pull. I think Helton was glad the hit came in a victory, and right after his teammate Michael Cuddyer led off the inning with a homerun. Photos copyright Getty Images 2013.
