Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Jeff Francis surrendered one run in six innings and Carlos Gonzalez went 5-for-5 with two home runs as the Colorado Rockies downed the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, 9-4, in the second of a three-game set.

Gonzalez also doubled and singled twice for Colorado, which had lost five of six entering play. Eric Young homered and drove in two while Troy Tulowitzki went 3-for-5 with two doubles. The Rockies erupted for 17 hits as a team as they led 7-0 before Chicago finally got to Francis for a run on Darwin Barney's homer in the bottom of the fifth.

Francis (2-3), a winner for the first time since his first start of the season, allowed just three hits, walked one and helped himself at the plate with a sacrifice fly.

The Rockies did most of their damage off Carlos Villanueva (1-3), who yielded seven runs on 12 hits in five innings.
