Gonzalez seeks strong finish as Rockies host Braves

DENVER -- Carlos Gonzalez is hitting better lately.

The Colorado Rockies right fielder was mired in a deep slump for so long, though, his chances of ending the season with a robust bottom line resembling those of past seasons are slim.

Instead, Gonzalez is aiming "to just finish strong" and help the Rockies reach the postseason for the first time since 2009, not concerning himself where his own stats end up.
