(Colo.) - Rockies score 11 runs in 5th in 18-9 win over Mets

By: John Thayer Posted at: 04/28/2012 06:37 AM
DENVER (AP) - Carlos Gonzalez was at the center of an 11-run fifth inning, hitting a homer and single to drive in five of his six RBIs, and the Colorado Rockies outslugged the New York Mets 18-9 on Friday night.
    
Ramon Hernandez hit his sixth career grand slam - and first for the Rockies this season - and Troy Tulowitzki and Dexter Fowler also homered for Colorado, which scored a season high.
    
The Mets had some firepower of their own as Scott Hairston became the 10th player in team history to hit for the cycle while driving in four runs, but it wasn't enough on a night when pitching was an afterthought and the ball was flying all over in the Mile High city's thin air.
    
The Rockies sent 14 batters to the plate against three Mets pitchers in the fifth in their biggest outburst since scoring a team-record 12 runs in the eighth inning on July 30, 2010, against the Chicago Cubs.
