Padres IF hospitalized in win over Rockies

BY foxsports • July 19, 2009

The San Diego Padres' locker room was quiet after this victory. No music, no happy banter. Just thoughts about injured teammate Edgar Gonzalez.

Gonzalez was hit in the head with a pitch in the sixth, an inning before pinch-hitter Chase Headley hit a go-ahead leadoff homer in San Diego's 3-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night.

"I saw the ball ricochet and it's a scary thing," Padres starter Kevin Correia said. "Being a pitcher, it's scary for you and it's scary for the hitter."
