Carlos Gonzalez’s two home runs were not enough, as the Colorado Rockies (8-8) fell to the Pittsburgh Pirates (7-9) 5-4 last night at PNC Park. Jamie Moyer pitched six innings for the Rockies before the bullpen was called in. The two teams will go at it twice today, the first game scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m. MT, with Game 2 starting 30 minutes after Game 1. (TV for both games: Root Sports.)

Gonzalez said he felt at full strength for the first time since a bout with strep throat kept him out of the lineup April 14-16, and he proved it with his two homers. The first was in the first, for a 2-0 lead against Pirates starter Kevin Correia, who didn’t give up any more runs in six innings. The second was off Pirates lefty reliever Tony Watson with two out in the eighth for a 4-3 lead.

“I’m feeling a lot better at the plate, and the more pitches I see, the better I’m going to get,” Gonzalez said.

Rockies pitchers for today’s doubleheader are right-handers Juan Nicasio and Jhoulys Chacin.
