Gonzalez lifts Brewers past Rockies

Alex Gonzalez hit a three-run homer to cap a six-run seventh inning Saturday and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Colorado Rockies, 9-4.

Gonzalez had three hits and four RBI while Ryan Braun belted a solo homer and knocked in two runs for the Brewers, who bounced back from a ninth-inning loss in the opener of this three-game series Friday to snap a two-game slide.

Jose Veras (2-0) pitched a perfect seventh for the win, while Esmil Rogers (0-1) took the loss in 1 1/3 innings.

Troy Tulowitzki and Todd Helton hit solo homers for the Rockies, who had a three-game winning streak snapped.
