DENVER (AP) - Carlos Gonzalez had five of Colorado's season-high 21 hits and Nolan Arenado made several slick plays at third base on a night he extended his hitting streak to 26 games as the Rockies routed the Texas Rangers 12-1 on Tuesday night.
It's the third time in Gonzalez's career he's had five hits in a game. Arenado waited until his final at-bat in the seventh to extend his streak, lacing an RBI double that hit just inside the left-field line. He's one away from tying the team record of 27 set by Michael Cuddyer last season.
Juan Nicasio got through five innings without his best command, giving up two hits and one run. He also walked a season-high five.
Robbie Ross Jr. had a rough outing as he allowed six runs and 12 hits in 5 1-3 innings.
