DENVER -- Carlos Gonzalez homered before leaving with a finger injury, Juan Nicasio pitched seven scoreless innings and drove in three runs, and the Colorado Rockies beat the New York Mets 7-4 on Thursday night.
Corey Dickerson had three hits, including an RBI triple and Nolan Arenado singled leading off the third to extend the majors' longest active streak to 21 games. He's tied for the fourth-longest hitting streak in Rockies team history.
Gonzalez connected for his sixth home run of the season in the first inning, driving a 3-2 offering from Bartolo Colon (2-4) off the right-center field facing just below the second deck. He was lifted in the fourth inning, replaced by pinch hitter Brandon Barnes, because of what the team said was a bruised left index finger. His playing status was listed as day to day.
