Cargo powers Rox past Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Carlos Gonzalez homered and drove in three runs to lift the Colorado Rockies to a 6-2 victory over the punchless Brewers on Wednesday night and snap a six-game skid in Milwaukee.

Kevin Millwood scattered two runs over six innings for the Rockies, who kept the Brewers from moving closer to their first division title in 29 years by roughing up starter Shaun Marcum.

Trailing 1-0, Colorado scored three in third capped by Gonzalez's homer, another in the fourth on a solo homer by Wilin Rosario and two more in the fifth, aided by a Brewers error.

Milwaukee's lead in the NL Central dropped to 5½ games over St. Louis, which beat Pittsburgh 3-2. The Brewers have Thursday off before a six-game road trip against division rivals Cincinnati and Chicago.
