The way the Colorado Rockies pitched on Friday night, they didn't need a lot offsense.

Carlos Gonzalez provided just enough in a 2-1 win over the Washington Nationals.

Gonzalez drilled a solo home run in the fourth inning and then in the sixth delivered what turned out to be the game-winning sacrifice fly.

The two runs were enough to support the Rockies bullpen, which turned in 4-and-a-third scoreless and hitless innings. Scott Oberg, Bryan Shaw, Mike Dunn, Adam Ottavino and Wade Davis combined to walk one and strike out six.


Major League Baseball also notified the Rockies that third baseman Nolan Arenado was suspended five games and left fielder Gerardo Parra received a four-game suspension for their roles in the fight with the Padres last Wednesday. The Rockies are appealing those suspensions.

The Rockies and Nationals play game three of their series on Saturday, April 14. Coverage begins with Rockies All-Access at 9:05 a.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
