DENVER -- Rockies outfield slugger Carlos Gonzalez doubled and hit a three-run homer Monday for Triple-A Colorado Springs in his first injury rehab game, at Round Rock. In the same game, left-hander Brett Anderson gave up a run in 5 2/3 innings of his second rehab start, a 6-4 victory.

The plan has been for Gonzalez to return for the weekend three-game weekend series with the Twins. Anderson threw 77 pitches Monday and is scheduled to throw about 85 pitches in his next start, though the Rockies have yet to decide whether that will be in Colorado Springs or back in the Majors.

Gonzalez, a two-time All-Star who has not played for the Rockies since June 3 because of a non-cancerous tumor in his left index finger that required surgery, faced right-hander Justin Germano in all three of his at-bats. Gonzalez doubled on a 1-0 pitch in the first inning and flied to left field in the third.

In the fifth, Jackson Williams walked and Jason Pridie singled to set up Gonzalez's home run on a 1-0 pitch to center field.

Anderson, who sustained a broken left index finger on April 12, gave up six hits, struck out four and walked one. He forced 10 ground-ball outs.
