DENVER (AP) -- Carlos Gonzalez hit a go-ahead homer in the fifth and rookie Nolan Arenado added a grand slam, lifting the Colorado Rockies to a 9-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday night in David Price's first start since his run-in with umpire Tom Hallion.

Jon Garland (3-2) threw five solid innings and surrendered three runs to help the Rockies snap an 11-game home skid in interleague play.

Arenado broke open a tight game when he lined a curveball from Price (1-3) into the left field seats in the seventh. It was his first career grand slam.

Price didn't have his best stuff, surrendering nine earned runs in 6 2-3 innings.
