Gonzalez, who homered in his last three at-bats Wednesday, hit a three-run shot in the first inning against Bud Norris. He was intentionally walked in the second, doubled in the fourth and singled in the eighth. Gonzalez's 14th homer made him the first Rockies player to go deep in four consecutive at-bats.

Colorado finished the series with 40 runs and 56 hits after scoring just 20 runs in its previous five home games. Every position player had at le...
