Gonzalez homers and doubles, Rockies beat Brewers

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Carlos Gonzalez drove in his first three runs with a homer and double, leading the Colorado Rockies over the Milwaukee Brewers 5-2 on Friday.

Gonzalez was 2 for 9 going into the game. He lined a two-run double in the third inning and homered off Ariel Pena in the fifth.

The All-Star outfielder will play one more game with Colorado before joining Team Venezuela for the World Baseball Classic.

The Rockies turned an unusual double play to end the fifth. With Norichika Aoki on first, Jean Segura singled. Right fielder Charlie Blackmon hit cutoff man Reid Brignac in the middle of the diamond, and he threw behind Segura for the out at first. Aoki thought it was the third out and strayed off the bag, and was picked off second.
