|It only took Nolan Arenado until the third inning Friday to reach the century mark yet again.
The Colorado Rockies third baseman entered the game with 98 RBIs on the season and then smacked a two-run home run off Miami Marlins starter Jose Urena to tally 100 RBIs for a third-straight season.

Arenado, the MLB leader in run production, reached the 100-RBI plateau before any other batter. He's the first NL player to do this for three consecutive seasons since Hall of Famer Willie Stargell did it from 1971-73, the team announced.
In 23 games since the All-Star break, the MVP candidate has been his best self at the plate drilling nine homers while driving in 30 runs.
Arenado set a career-high with 133 RBIs in 2016 and could challenge that number again as long as the likes of Charlie Blackmon continue to reach base ahead of him.
