After slugging two home runs in back-to-back games, Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez only hit one last night. He’s slipping.
You really need to watch the sequence of his first-inning homer last night. CarGo came close to a home run with a fly ball along the right field foul pole, but the ball was ruled foul and the call was confirmed by replay review. He then took Chris Heston deep on the very next pitch. And there was no doubt about this one.
Gonzalez had just four home runs in 49 games going into June 6. He has 32 home runs in 77 games since.
