"I was thinking homer at that point," Helton said. But it was still an unforgettable night for Helton, who tied a career high set in 2003 with six RBIs and hit multiple homers for the first time since April 26, 2011. The first of Helton's two three-run homers came in the fourth off Bronson Arroyo , roughed up for six runs and nine hits over 3 1/3 innings in his shortest outing of the season. "I looked at [closer] Rex [Brothers], and I said, 'Wait a minute, the stage is set for another three-run tank for his 2,500th," said reliever Matt Belisle, a close friend and longtime teammate of Helton's. He had already belted two three-run home runs, putting him one hit away from career No. 2,500 with two runners on once again, the opportunity for a truly unbelievable night in what is widely expected to be his final season.
