Rockies hit 4 homers to beat Reds 10-7

CINCINNATI (AP) - Carlos Gonzalez's two-run homer - Colorado's fourth overall - broke an eighth-inning tie and sent the Rockies to a 10-7 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night in a game that featured a long rain delay and seven homers in all.

Seth Smith hit a pair of two-run homers for the Rockies, the fifth multihomer game of his career. Gonzalez snapped a 7-all tie with the first homer allowed by left-hander Bill Bray (2-2) this season. Todd Helton also homered.

Matt Belisle (6-4) pitched out of a threat in the seventh and Huston Street worked the ninth for his 29th save in 32 chances.

Jay Bruce, Drew Stubbs and Brandon Phillips homered for the Reds, who have lost five of seven.

Colorado's four homers matched its season high and the seven homers combined accounted for 15 of the 17 runs scored.

Bruce got it started with a three-run homer in the first inning off Jason Hammel, his first since July 9.
