DENVER — Carlos Gonzalez tripled twice, drove in four runs and scored three times Wednesday night, leading the Colorado Rockies to a wild 17-8 win over Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants that recalled the pre-humidor days at Coors Field.
The Rockies collected 22 hits — half of them for extra bases — on a cool, sometimes damp evening, their best offensive output since a 22-hit game at Montreal on Aug. 12, 2000.
Matt Reynolds (1-0) got the win with 1 2-3 innings in relief of Jeremy Guthrie, who failed to hold a 6-0 lead, and Tyler Chatwood picked up his first career save with a three-inning stint.
Guillermo Mota (0-1) took the loss in relief of an ineffective Lincecum, who had his second straight shaky start.
