Video: Carlos Gonzalez smacks 16th homer in last 28 games
Picking up where Drew left off on Sunday… Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez stayed hot on Monday against the Mets, hitting an opposite field two-run home run to put the Rockies up 2-1 in the fourth inning against starter Jon Niese.
Gonzalez has now hit 16 home runs in his last 28 games, giving him 26 on the season along with 64 RBI and a .282/.339/.551 batting line. He’s homered 13 times since the All-Star break, the most in baseball in that span of time. That’s as many as the Braves and four more than the Marlins have hit as a team in the second half.
