Rockies shortstop Trevor Story, 23, is doing his best to help Colorado fans forget that they lost Troy Tulowitzki to a trade last season.

Story has homered in the first three games of his career – something that had never been done before. He took Arizona’s big-time offseason acquisition – Zack Greinke – deep twice on Monday in a 10-5 win.

On Tuesday, he homered off Shelby Miller, another Arizona offseason acquisition, in an 11-6 loss.

On Wednesday, he took Patrick Corbin deep in a 4-3 win.

“It’s just kind of surreal right now,” Story said. “It’s hard to explain. I can’t really put words to it.”

The Rockies host San Diego on Friday. Stay tuned.
