Sunday Fundays for Nolan Arenado

Arenado went 4-for-4, including his 35th homer, in the Rockies' 5-3 win on Sunday. Seven days earlier, Arenado went 4-for-5 with two HRs and six RBIs. Over the last five seasons, only one other player with at least 30 HRs had four-hit games no more than a week apart: Paul Goldschmidt in 2013, the Elias Sports Bureau notes.
