Chase Headley had a pinch-hit homer in the seventh, lifting the concerned San Diego Padres to a 3-1 win over the Colorado Rockies an inning after Edgar Gonzalez was hit in the head with a pitch and carted off the field Saturday night.
Gonzalez left the game after he was beaned by a fastball from Jason Hammel in the sixth inning. Gonzalez was hit near the left ear hole on his batting helmet and immediately fell to the ground clutching his head. After several minutes, he was helped to a cart and driven off the field.
Edgar's brother, All-Star Adrian Gonzalez, was pulled from the game when the inning ended to go to the hospital where Edgar was being treated.
