Helton doubled for his 2,500th career hit and the Colorado Rockies overcame the loss of starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood to beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-4 on Sunday.

Helton homered twice and matched a career high with six RBIs to power the Colorado Rockies past the Cincinnati Reds 9-6 on Friday night.

Helton's 28th career multihomer game and first since 2011 left him one hit shy of 2,500. Helton also had six RBIs against the Los Angeles Dodgers on May 29, 2003.

Helton went 2 for 3 in Friday's 10-1 rout of the Bucs.

Helton has seen better days and his .715 OPS is a career worst.

Helton went 2 for 5, homering in Colorado's 12-4 win at Cincinnati on Wednesday.

Helton is 8 for 24 with three homers and six RBIs during a seven-game hitting streak.

Helton had two hits as the Colorado Rockies blanked the Giants 5-0 on Friday night.

Helton's OPS is .659 - by far a career low.

Helton has been sentenced to a year of probation and 24 hours of community service after pleading guilty to driving while ability-impaired.

The Denver Post reports Helton entered his plea Tuesday in an Adams County courtroom in the northeast Denver suburb of Brighton. Helton was arrested Feb. 6 in Thornton, another suburb. Police said he told officers he had had two cups of wine. He issued a public apology later that day and again two weeks later when Spring Training opened.

The Rockies activated Helton from the disabled list Sunday and he was in the lineup against the Rays.

The 39-year-old hit .268 (11 for 41) with three doubles, one home run and 10 RBIs in 13 games before going on the DL with a left forearm strain.
