On This Day In Baseball History: July 31, 2010

Carlos Gonzalez

 

In what will become his breakout year, Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez hits a game winning walk-off home run giving the Rockies a 6-5 victory and completing the sixth cycle in Rockies history. With his walk-off blast he also became just the fifth player to ever complete a cycle with a walk-off homer. Gonzalez would finish 2010 as the NL’s leader in batting average with a .336 average, hits with 197, and total bases with 351. He would also win the Silver Slugger award and his first Gold Glove as well as finishing 3rd in the NL MVP voting.
