Colorado Rockies slugger Trevor Story stroked a double off Arizona Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke in the first inning of Tuesday's game.

It was Story's 40th two-bagger of the season. With that hit, the 25-year-old became the first shortstop in major-league history to record at least 40 doubles, 30 home runs, and 25 stolen bases in a single season. He also drove in his 100th run of the campaign on the play.

Last week, Story reached the 30-homer plateau for the first time when he blasted three long balls in a single game against the San Francisco Giants.

After injuries derailed his rookie campaign in 2016 and he stumbled through a rough sophomore season in 2017, Story has righted the ship in a big way. Entering Tuesday, he was slashing .293/.348/.559 and was worth 4.6 wins above replacement through 142 games.
