Rockies shortstop Trevor Story won his second consecutive Silver Slugger Award. But third baseman Nolan Arenado, winner of four consecutive Silver Sluggers, saw his string end Thursday when Louisville Slugger announced the winners.

Story set career highs in runs (111), batting average (.294) and on-base percentage (.363). He hit 35 home runs – two shy of his career-high set in 2018 – and became the first shortstop in major league history to begin his career with four consecutive seasons of 20 or more home runs.

Story became the first Rockies player with multiple seasons of at least 30 home runs and 20 stolen bases. Five Rockies have had one such season, most recently outfielder Carlos Gonzalez in 2010. Story joins Alex Rodriguez (1998-1999) as the second shortstop in major league history with multiple 30/20 seasons.
