Rockies complete sweep of Nationals

Associated Press

Given a chance to stay at the plate after a disputed non-strikeout, Carlos Gonzalez blooped a run-scoring double that helped the Colorado Rockies beat the Washington Nationals, 4-1, Thursday night to complete a three-game sweep.

Gonzalez's club-record-tying streak of four games with a homer ended, but he again came through for the NL wild-card leaders. Troy Tulowitzki and Brad Hawpe also drove in runs to back a strong performance by Jason Hammel (8-7), who gave up one run and three hits in seven innings.
