Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez yet to find timing
"I'm looking to make solid contact, and when it happens a lot of those balls are going to go over the wall," Gonzalez said. "It's something we don't look for. Just good swings -- when you feel consistent with your swing a lot of extra bases and home runs are going to come. I can feel when I'm in the zone and hitting the ball hard. My swing is good. It's just timing. I've been out front often, but the more I play the more I'm going to see the ball better."
Gonzalez has hit just .214/.244/.381 with one home run and five RBI coming into Sunday's game against the Dodgers.
