(5/17/13) Rockies first baseman Todd Helton hit his third home run of the season Thursday, in an 8-6 loss to the Giants.
He went 1 for 4 in the game, and his homer came in the second inning with one runner on base. Helton is now batting .257 on the season, while receiving most of his starts at first base against right-handed pitchers. He has just nine at-bats against left-handers this season.

Hit Parade for Week 8
Some heavy hitters are finally starting to return to form and good health, leaving owners with many tough decisions. Our Scott White looks at all of the streaks and matchups in his latest Hit Parade.
Todd Helton takes one deep
Pagan breaks it open for Giants in win over Rockies
Angel Pagan broke a tie with a two-run single in the sixth, Matt Cain settled down after a shaky start and the San Francisco Giants won their 10th straight over Colorado, rallying from a six-run deficit to beat the Rockies 8-6 on Thursday night.
Gonzalez HRs twice in career night for Rockies
Carlos Gonzalez homered twice and finished with a career-high five hits to lead the struggling Colorado Rockies to a 9-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night.
|Todd Helton has missed plenty of time in recent seasons due to health issues, but his 69 games played in 2012 was his lowest total since his first year in the majors back in 1997. He was plagued by a hip injury, and when he finally had surgery in August, his season came to an end. He also underwent a minor arthroscopic procedure on his left knee this offseason, but Helton still plans on being ready for spring training and his 17th season with the Rockies. The days of Helton being a sure-fire .300 hitter are long gone, and he is even further removed from being a power threat. Add in his perennial health issues, and owners have little reason to pursue Helton as anything more than a low-end first base option in NL-only leagues. (Updated 1/10/13)|
