Assuming that you have the Google Maps search template turned on in the index, you can open the contact address in Google Maps by searching for the contact, hit the tab key*, then start typing 'Google Maps' to bring up the search.
*If the contact has more than one address, you will want to search for the contact, right-arrow, select the desired address from the list, hit the tab key, then start typing 'Google Maps' to bring up the search.

After reading your response, I tried it again with some other contacts and the results were all over the place. The search still worked with my original test contacts, but clearly what I suggested is not a reliable solution. Sorry for the bad info.
Personally, I now use LaunchBar's built-in support for the Maps.app, which I am happy with but I understand that many people still prefer using Google Maps.
