Gonzalez Powers Rockies Over Cardinals 6-1
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Carlos Gonzalez hit a three-run homer, Jason Hammel pitched into the seventh inning and the Colorado Rockies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 on Saturday night.

Gonzalez also doubled in a run in the ninth to help the Rockies snap a three-game slide. Colorado also had dropped their last five games in St. Louis by a combined 22-3 score.

Left-hander Jaime Garcia had a rare off night at home as St. Louis fell five games behind first-place Milwaukee in the NL Central.
