DENVER — Carlos Gonzalez homered and Colorado used a group approach that featured two newcomers to make up for a gap in the rotation as the Rockies beat the Atlanta Braves 5-3 on Friday night. Daniel Descalso had a run-scoring triple and Nolan Arenado and D.J. LeMahieu added RBI doubles for the Rockies, who have won their last four games against the Braves, their longest streak ever against Atlanta. Kelly Johnson connected for his ninth homer, a three-run shot in the sixth inning and Cameron Maybin singled in the sixth to extend his hitting streak to a career-high tying 10 games.
