With his long shot over the power alley in right-center, Gonzalez became the 13th player in major league history to get extra-base hits in 10 straight games, according to STATS LLC. He's the first to do it since Johnny Damon accomplished the feat May 4-14, 2009, for the New York Yankees.
In the second, Iannetta sent a pitch halfway up the left-field bleachers for his eighth homer, a three-run shot, and Fowler went deep with his fourth home run and a 4-0 lead.
The Phillies didn't get a hit until Werth's single with two outs in the fourth. He scored on Raul Ibanez's single. Young's throwing error led to another unearned run in the fifth that made it 4-2 on Utley's sacrifice fly.
The Rockies got the run back in the bottom half when Gonzalez hit his 31st homer. Center fielder Shane Victorino didn't even bother to give chase as the ball landed beyond the Phillies' bullpen more than 450 feet from home plate.
Seth Smith added an RBI single to make it 6-2 and chase Blanton, who allowed six runs, four earned, on 10 hits in 4 1-3 innings.
Chacin ran into trouble in the sixth when Werth and Ibanez reached on infield singles. After a fielder's choice put runners at the corners with one out, Belisle came in and walked Brian Schneider on four pitches to load the bases.
Pinch hitter Mike Sweeney was hit on his right hand on a 1-2 pitch, bringing in a run that made it 6-3 and leading to Rockies manager Jim Tracy's ejection by home plate umpire Paul Emmel.
Tulowitzki made it 7-3 in the bottom of the inning with an infield single off Bastardo.
NOTES: The other time Utley had six RBIs also came against Colorado, on May 26, 2008. ... Colorado RHP Aaron Cook, who's been sidelined by a toe injury, will pitch Friday night against the Padres.
